1. What you do with your winter coat upon entering a danceclub.

"Avoid after-hours chills and loss of property during Chicago winter. Instead of wrapping a sticky barstool with your pea coat—just check it! Upon arrival to any nightclub, this chore comes first. You can work the room, flirt with the bartender, or go trainspotting *after* your coat is in a safe place. At the end of the night when you pick it up—be sure and tip the attendant well."


2. A section of a pattern made by rectilinear repetition.

The lady's Burberry handbag sported the company's trademarked check pattern.


3. The act relating to the various transactions of goods/services for legal tender generally exchanged between cashiers and customers in "check-out lines" which provide a convenient setting for this process (usually seen near the exit of supermarkets, retail department stores, etc.)
"Following the unexpected rush to the regular as well as the express check-outs, all available cashiers were paged to the front of the store to check."

A coded word that brings attention to the fact that someone in the vicinity is making a move on the opposite sex (without being obvious). The move being made may be overt, subtle, physical, flirting etc. Checks are usually done to embarrass the parties involved.
Advanced users may make a more complex coding system such as check-plus, check-minus, j-check, s-check etc which may be user defined.
