    Amygdala:
    In der Bedeutung "Drückeberger" ist "skiver" BE slang.
    Das schottische (Scits) Wort "skiver" bedeutet "prowler, a prying person", als jemand, der verdächtig herumschleicht und herumschnüffelt.

    'skiver' is known everywhere in the U.K. as a man who does not like to work. Certainly not just Scottish.
