Toilet move

This was defined by GM Nigel Short as "When you really have to go to the loo, so you make any move that won't ruin your position and run off."

If a quick move is made in a decisive stage of the game and therefore the whole game gets lost, it's said that the move had been a 'toilet move'. The less literal-minded will take it to mean a planless or bad waiting move.
