    That’s idiom:

    mít něčeho plné kecky = to have enough of something / to be tired of something

    Btw. "kecky" is Czech colloquial expression for Keds shoes, very popular here in sixties (as far as I remember :) ).

    Mám toho plné kedsky. = My KEDS shoes are full of it. (apparently paraphrasing My shoes are full of stones/water/...) = I am tired of it. I am completely exhausted of it.

    A similar idiom (with slightly different meaning):

    Mám toho plné zuby. = My teeth are full of it. = I am fed up with it.

    If you are interested, the pre-war American KEDS shoes of high quality were very popular in Czechoslovakia. After WWII the nationalized Baťa company produced something similar. The quality was very low, as far as I remeber.
