Sweepings: The scraps, leavings, hand-me-downs, things tossed aside as the quality stuff is grabbed up at sales. Junk.
Allie and her friend Brenda waited all night to get into the store with the Grand Opening mega-sale. As they were scrunched through the door the mob rushed right through them and by the time they could get the clothes they dreamed of - all that was left were torn & dirty things that were either way too small or large enough to use as a tent. Scraps and pieces of clothing littered the floors, trampled and raggedly filthy junk.

Well Bren, looks like were stuck with the sweepings.

the art of flirting with and befriending a group of women who have reserved a table in a club with the purpose of then drinking some or all of their alcohol whilst they are fully aware you are doing it and without them taking offence to it.

The term is derived from the act commonly performed by females on desperate and horny men who have rented tables in Las Vegas nightclubs whereby the women would steal the men's drinks.

The act of sweeping is considered highly challenging and commendable amongst men due to the level of difficulty involved.

The official term used to label anything that is swept into a pile of trash with the use of a broom.

The size of individual pieces inside the pile as a whole does not matter unless that piece is removed from the pile. In this case that piece of sweeping is no longer regarded as a sweeping but simply as trash or whatever wierd use a person could have for something that has been in a pile of sweepings.
I had the biggest pile of sweepings I'd seen in a long time swept together when I was cleaning my kitchen last night. Then my dog came in and picked out a large piece which then appeared to be half of a trashy Home Gardening Magazine. What he did with it I'll never know.
