A term used when you are given loads of options, and are struggling to choose which you want. It can be a physical pile or one you imagine. You then look at all thats left in the maybe pile and choose from that selection. You may make a second maybe pile from the first maybe pile, or as many maybe piles as it takes until you've made your decision.
