shift means the same as to meet someone. people used to use it all the time,in ireland, back in the day when everyone watched 'den 2' religiously when they came home from school and when they'd spend their evenings with their friends looking for more 10p coins to buy another Mr.Freeze or three. Shifting was innocent, and it was fun! then you became a teenager and shifting had two meanings; you could just meet him or you could go all the way if you wanted to! help revive an old word and bring it back into 21st century conversation by using the word 'shift' NOW!!!! they brought back wispa's so bring back shifting too!!!!!!!!! go on, you know you want to, go out and shift him NOW!!!
Emma:"eh, will you shift my friend?"
James McEvoy:"Ok!" (in a really sexy scottish accent)
Boy1: "D'ye shift her yet?"
Boy2: "No,i got this talk at school and i'm going to become a priest."
Boy1: "emm...o-kay then..." runs away.
Emma: "OMG you shifted James McEvoy, you are like THE uber-shifter now!"
Aoife: "The what?!!"
Emma: "ehh, never mind! anyway did you shift him, or did you, you know, shift him?!"
