    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.

      Are you joking? FOB = Fresh Off the Boat, e.g. someone who just arrived in Japan for their first job at an eikaiwa.

            Technically it's about any newbie to any country. It's not limited to Japan. I don't know where it originated.
