Loiter

(lȯi’-tər)

v. 1. To be idle.

2. To remain in an area with for no obvious reason.

 

“It’s called loitering, which is like littering with human beings as the trash.”                          -Neal Shusterman

 

Comes from Middle Dutch loteren “to be loose or erratic,” as in something moving about randomly, although nowadays it brings to mind someone staying put randomly. Often seen being prohibited on signs outside your local corner store, but you’re welcome to loiter here on this page as long as you like.
