skive (something)

To absent oneself or leave early from something (usually school or work) when one would normally be required to be there; to play truant. Primarily heard in UK. I was so restless and bored at work that I decided to just skive it after lunch without telling anyone. Hey, Jim and I are planning on skiving from school on Friday, do you want to come with us? That's the last time you skive class, mister! From now on, I'm dropping you to school every morning!
