To leave less than a full portion of something in a misguided effort to be polite.
Sometimes this is an attempt to avoid guilt for consuming the last portion. Most commonly used in reference to food, but can be used with supplies and materials.
"My sister squiffled the cookies."
(She left just one in the package, rather than simply finishing the package.)
