Some slang words you might hear from your Turkish Friends. And they might sound rude to other people though. 



Tüymek  -    to leg it  [ to run away ]


Beni görünce  tüydü --> He legged it  when he saw me.


                                    He  run away  when he saw me.





beleş -  free  [ something you get free, without working for it. ] its not very polite word, but some people likes getting things without working for it.


 And we call  those type of people  as  " beleşçi " = one who lives at the expense of others, one who wants things for free.


  * Alternative to this word would be  " bedavacı "


* this word, etymologically, comes from arabic, 

 Ar bilā şayˀ بلا شيء karşılıksız, bedava  bila + şey    




bozuk  çalmak  - looking like  bored,  displeased., angry, having sullen face.


Bugün  bozuk  çalıyorsun ---> You act [look] like  angry , bored and displeased today.



bitmek  - This action may used in slang and can mean " to like something or someone so much that  going mad about it or that person.


 O arabaya bittim. ---> I liked that car so much .


note that this is slang and and might be considered as rude expression by other people.
