Finnish term or phrase: lopari / loppari
Another quote from an employee satisfaction questionnaire:

"
Kun kuulee työkaverin puhuvan toisesta ”Jos hän ylentyy, minä otan loparit”, ei ilmapiiri tunnu kauhean kannustavalta.
"

Does "loparit" (which should perhaps be spelled with two "p"s) here mean "loput"?

(And if so, should it be understood to mean "Loput työtunnit" or similar in this context?)
