Top definition
Old-school way of ousting someone from the community as retribution for wrongdoing without involving the police. Quietly telling everyone (bouncers, bartenders, grocery store cashiers, mail carriers, blockbuster employees, etc.) about the person’s misdeed so that no one will serve them or help them anywhere in the neighborhood and they have no choice but to move.

A form a vigilante justice.
“He robbed your car and raped your sister, and you’re not calling the police?!”

“Nah. We’re givin’ him the old Boston Goodbye, and he’ll be outta Southie for good.”

*note, the word c-a-r is pronounced CAwh.
