    Default 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.

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