On Rolling Someone

Where I originated, to roll someone meant to forcibly rob someone, usually with considerable violence.

Therefore, I was surprised to overhear a conversation between two teen girls about rolling another girl.  They did not look like your typical tough girls, but I wondered.

It was a few days later that I found out another meaning of the expression to roll someone:


  1. That's called TPing around here.

  2. Ah yes,.. I was a master roller back in the day. It is truly an art form........

  3. It was called rolling in Huntsville, Athens, and Florence. A typical Halloween prank.
