"could you shift?"

Posted by Bubu on June 16, 2005

Hello,
While I was sitting on a bench someone came and said "could you shift?" meaning could you move a bit. I was wondering if it was correct to use the word"shift" in such a situation. Some say that it does not sound natural in American english. Others say it's a college slang. Please comment.
Thanks
