Can mean stealing peoples
. But it's usually applied to the act of drinking
left over drinks
in a bar left by other customers in order to get intoxicated on the cheap. Usually done
by people who are highly drunk or very poor. Or a mix of any of the above.
Quentin ran out of money, but wasn't quite ready to finish

until he was sufficiently
watered. A group
of revellers noticed Quentin mine sweeping and immediately coiled with disgust.
