Definition

Put off usually is used to affirm and encourage a friend's action. Especially if the action is extremely stupid.

It has nothing to do with the actual English phrase about making a smart remark to put someone in his/her/its place. Nor anything to do with procrastination.

Usage

1.
Girl 1: I want to wear purple dress for the party ya.
Girl 2: Ok, put off.

2.
Boy 1: Macha, for that figgar, I'll put kai?
Boy 2 (despite knowing of figgar's rowdy family): Ya, ya. Put off.
