Re: BOBs (Bothersome Old Bags)

How about that BOB standing EXACTLY at the cross-walk... you slow down and stop to let her cross and she just turns and scowls at you, pointing for you to go. Hello?! Why are you standing AT the cross-walk if you don't even want to cross the road???

When a strange dog runs up to me, I curse too. In German, Swiss or just with gestures. The only difference is I don't care where the owner comes from.

Signed,
An Auslander BOB
It was a PUG!

When a dog off the leash comes running up to me, my mind only screams one thing: strange dog I don't know! The owner doesn't have it under control! Idiot owner. Possibly aggressive dog.

I'm as cute as a button but can still bite.

Bünzli neighbor, maybe?
This kind of dissatisfied characters you will find everywhere. You can be as "integrated" as you want, you'll always find those who seek the blame for all their troubles outside of their own persona. The BOBs are just the local version.

Some years ago on an assignment in South America, where a colleague and I otherwise had a great time with lots of fun locals. We were leaving a bar talking to each other in our language. We didn't get far when we were challenged by some louts who called us gringos and started throwing stones and bottles. We were lucky to jump into a taxi and escape to the hotel unharmed but shaken.

On a motorcycle trip through Greece my then girlfriend and I were greeted by children throwing stones while we entered some nameless village - now who prepared them to welcome foreigners / tourists in that manner?

Then - also quite some years ago in Basel - I was relaxing in a park when two presumably African gentleman walked by obviously oblivious to their surroundings. One was trying to calm the other down, who was seriously threatening to kill as many caucasians as he possibly could (OK he didn't use the word caucasian....). Downright scary.

Experiences like that are a put off and it just confirms that troubled and / or misinformed people are a potential danger to others.

Thanks for so many cheering remarks. Here's the offending assault dog:
ahh how sweet! such a lovely little face!

I tend to walk my Lhasas at a time when I know most dog walking old dearies are having their afternoon snoozes, recharging their batteries for their afternoon walks,traumatising decent folk like yourself!

What a cutie. If he ran up to me I'd be so happy to cuddle him.

You didn't meet a BOB as BOBs are harmless. You met a crazy lunatic psycho! Next time call the police on her for harassing/attacking/stalking/anything you. It's only when she starts getting a taste of her own medicine will she possibly stop. And even then....

Re: BOBs (Bothersome Old Bags)

BOBs (Bothersome Old Bags) now I just read on BBC news that a couple of 70 year old bags refuse to hang up their G strings and whips, and are writing their memoirs,

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19727455

... hats off to them, but it is sad that they have to keep working at their age. I am sure after 50 yeras servicing the men of Amsterdam they deserve a long service medal.

Yeah, and even then... . I can't tell you how many times I've seen someone persisting in lunacy even after the police were on the spot and telling all concerned to just drop it and go separate ways. I once saw a 60+ year old woman repeatedly striking a police officer with her handbag simply because he told her that her behavior was wrong and could land her in jail, which is eventually what happened.
