Removing or Kicking
Orgin: 1940's? bartender slang.
bartenders use to switch 100% proof to 86% proofs after a person
got drunk. cuz the loaded person
couldn't tell the differnce. and when person
falls asleep at the bar they would get booted
out. this would help them
get more customers and save up for the more stonger
proofs everybody wants.
now it is used to mean to get rid of something or a person
(not at bars).
