look up any word, like the eiffel tower:
Argentinian slang meaning 'to steal' or 'to nick'.
Me parece que me afanaron el celular. No lo encuentro por ninguna parte (I think I had my phone stolen. I can't find it anywhere)

Los políticos de mierda no dejan de afanarle a la gente (Bloody politicians never stop stealing from the people)

Pensás que soy un pelotudo ? Me dí cuenta que me afanaste el libro ayer cuando estabas en mi casa. (Do you think I'm stupid ? I realised you nicked my book while you were at my place yesterday)
