How 'bout when a restaurant is out of something? They tell the wait staff to "86" the item. Also you get buried in a 8' long coffin 6' under... creepy, huh? Comment by: JP   
I've worked in a restaurant and I was told that "86"ing an item is an old military term for needing to restock on that item. Comment by: Chris G   
Still around. To "86" something is to strike it off a list, perhaps in preparation for restocking. Comment by: farcat   
this is a term I have heard lots of times in washington. like "I can't go there... Last time I got so drunk they 86ed me" Comment by: wes   
To my understanding, this term originates from the US MArines. 86. To throw away or get rid of something. From the number of the form originally used to remove an item from a stock record. You could 86 something by throwing it off the side of a ship. (though I wouldn't recommend it) Comment by: Kathy
