"I don't want chips, you can leave it."
Translation:ʻAʻole au makemake i ke kipi, e waiho.
This is a comment that one could use to leave something off the plate. Many places, both on the islands and on the mainland, would simply say, Hold the tomatoes. E waiho the tomatoes.
[PE] 1 nvt To leave, lay or put down, place before, present, refer, submit, place in nomination, file, deposit,
set aside, exclude, evacuate, abdicate, desist, cease, stop, omit,
quit, resign, abandon, remain; to table, as a motion; a leaving, depository, etc.
I understand the meaning of "waiho".
It is the English translation I have a problem with.
