“Grab”: use in context explanation
It’s Saturday evening. Dick is watching a football game as he does very often. Gina would like him to pay more attention to her and maybe help her clean the house or cook something for a change. He, on the other hand, doesn’t see any problem. He likes to sit on his armchair and watch TV. The man could do with a beer, though (he wants a beer). He asks his wife to grab him one without even turning around or saying “please”. Gina decides to play a joke on him. She gets the beer and spills it right onto her husband’s head.
