    left and right

    I heard something like: "We'll pick up people left and right".

    I guess "left and right" means "somewhere or other".
    Please define "left and right" for me, and please give me some examples.
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: left and right

    It means that you pick them up from everywhere and are doing so in large numbers.
