Nar ainer! - You fool, you!

Nebbish - A nobody, simpleton, weakling, awkward person

Nishtgutnick - No-good person

Oh, I've had plenty of nudniks on the coach this week, annoying me no end! I'll be glad when it's the weekend!

I totally missed your ABC post this week. I'm sooooo sorry. Truthfully, it's been a b*tch of a week and I missed most everyone's posts. I hate it when life gets in the way. Anyway, the pic made me LOL! Seems that Yiddish does not want for negative/insulting words! :-)
