do you mean f.o.b. or fob??
f.o.b. is free on board
fob means to deceive or dupe someone into doing something... i think
"my boss gave me some menial paperwork to do but i fobbed it off on dave"
actually i am not a teacher and have few existing brain cells, so hold out for the official english teacher answer for the second one.

f.o.b. is free on board Are you joking? FOB = Fresh Off the Boat, e.g. someone who just arrived in Japan for their first job at an eikaiwa.

so its not about a certain ethnicity, but bout someone new to japan? Technically it's about any newbie to any country. It's not limited to Japan. I don't know where it originated.
