Verb. (i.e. "To Keys") (Pronounced "Keez")
To notice someone waiting for something (for example, the shower), and time your approach in such a way as to sneak in front of them the instant their back is turned, thereby cutting them off, and sneaking whatever it is for yourself, first.
The appropriate response to BEING "Keysed" is to shake your fist in the air, and exclaim "Why like this?"
Phrase originally popularized by divers, working offshore, who routinely go out of their way to steal shower time, snacks, or other goodies out from under their colleagues.
James: "Damn it, Keith! ...I put my shaving kit, towel, and soap in the shower, and I was just about to start the water, and I decided to hit the head, first! ...Then? Dano snuck in there while I was in the head and stole my shower!"
Keith: "Hahaha! You got keysed, Man!"
James: <shaking fist in the air> "Why like this!!?"
