The City of Much Noodge

Unless you’re familiar with Yiddish, you may have never heard the brilliantly descriptive term: noodge.

I LOVE that term.

Here are a few definitions I found online:

Noodge: to nag or annoy with constant complaining.

Noodge: to pester, nag, whine.

Noodge: to be nosey, pushy and a general pain in the ass.

I realize that noodges live everywhere in the world, but I would almost bet that the greater percentage of them live right here in Philadelphia.

Whenever I think of a noodge, I envision Alice Pearce from the TV show, Bewitched.


Noodges are people who are always in your business.

Always stickin' their nose where it doesn’t belong.

And they're not doing this out of genuine concern, they're doing this because they're just plain NOSEY and want to gossip about it with their next door neighbor. Who, which by the way, also gossips about THEM.

Noodges are always handing out free advice and telling you what to do. And while they’re telling you what to do, it feels as though they’re jabbing their index finger into your shoulder, and saying, “YOU. NEED. TO. DO. THIS!”

Noodges don’t comprehend the meaning of personal boundaries.

Noodges also COMPLAIN a lot.

They can‘t wait until summer gets here and then they complain about the heat. They complain about the cold of winter. They complain about the snow. And they complain about the rain. The only time they don’t complain is when it’s 75 degrees, zero humidity, sunny, and the barometric pressure is perfect.

And just to give you an example of how NOODGIE this city is, I want to share something that happened to me a few weeks ago while I was out taking a few photographs.

I was down in Society Hill, which is a gorgeous historical part of Philadelphia, yet it’s also the most uppity part of town. It’s primarily full of Philadelphia natives with blue blood, who think that only other people with blue blood have the right to be there.

Society Hills is beautiful, yet it’s clearly unto itself.

Anyway, I was standing on the sidewalk with my camera; getting ready to take a photograph of a PUBLIC garden, when this woman suddenly stuck her head out her front door and just STARED at me.

I smiled and said, “Hello!” However, she didn’t respond. But instead, slammed the door.

About a minute later, she opened her front door again and STARED at me with these suspicious eyes, as if I was a serial killer or daytime home-robber.

I said “Hello” again, but got another door slammed at me.

Finally, after the third time of opening her front door and STARING at me, I said, “Excuse me, but do you have a problem?”

She flusteredly replied, “No-o.”

I said, “Then why do you keep staring at me? All I‘m doing is taking a picture. And for your information, I LIVE in this city, therefore have just as much right to be here as you do.”

Just then....*SLAM!*

Noodge: to be nosey, pushy and a general pain in the ass.

Yup….that pretty much sums it up.


*So tell me, have you ever experienced a noodge?

  1. Good morning Ronnie,

    This is the first time that I heard the word Noodge. Funny word but not so funny effects if you stimble upon a noodge.

    Oh yes; I get noodges all over my neighborhood and especially the female species. The first years when I lived in France, I used to call them "bag ladies". The noodges all seemed to have these oversized handbags and were curious to know any kind of tidbit about residents. One even asked my in-laws(because she noticed that I had been missing awhile;note; I left because my Dad was sick) if D and I ha

  2. SORRY...
    had asked if D and I had divorced! Talk about nosy...

    So yes; I have been touched by the French equivalent of the noodge!

    Have a great Monday.

    P.S. How is the weather now? I heard about that early snowstorm...

  3. Hahaha.......oh how I wish you had a photo of that Noodge! Nope, I've never heard the term.....we just say 'Busybody' I guess!

  4. Happy Halloween Ron!

    I have seen so many of these type people. I think they're nut jobs. People like that have no life of their own. It's sad. It's also annoying.

    Speaking of Halloween... isn't today the day that some people find flaming bags of "stuff" on their porch? Nevermind... that's just my ugly side coming out. You're too much of a sweetheart to do anything like that.

    Hope you have a wonderful Halloween and that you don't run into any more noodges tonight.

    Trick or Treat!

    XOXO

  5. Good for you to confront that noodge!! She was probably on the phone telling her neighbor about it 5 seconds after that last slam. It's a good thing the cops didn't show up and want to see your photos! That actually happened to my girlfriend. She was taking pictures at a fair and someone complained and security had to talk to her. They knew she wasn't doing anything wrong and more than likely the person was just trying to cause trouble but it's definitely no fun to have someone in your business.
    So yeah, I know the type. Haven't had any recent encounters though, ah but the week is young. ;)
    It's funny because sometimes I get called nudgey by Ron. And I do get that way... you know, just a little on edge sometimes. Not sure what I want to do or where to go just feel a little restless. Occasionally, I'll even say to him that I feel nudgey and he knows right away to not stir the great big pot of emotions. HA! He's almost got it figured out after these many years. But thank goodness I'm just a bit of a nudge and not a total busybody NOODGE! They are different things!

    Happy Halloween, neighbor! We've got bags of candy to give to the trick-or-treaters later.

    Have a fab week. x

  6. what an excellent example! The way you tell the story is almost as if it was scripted and the noodge was opening her door for her noodgie business on cue. Sometimes people's crazy noodgie behavior is just beyond explanation, is it not?

    And I've not ever heard that word before. So funny sounding!

    Plenty of chronic complainers, no matter where you are.

    Thank you for dropping by earlier. we both send you our love xoxo Diane

    That sounds pretty passive/aggressive too. I love how she just opened and shut the door as if to say, "you are so annoying, I don't want you here but I'm not going to tell you to your face."
    I love the word noodge. I know quite a few of them.
    I also like the word nosh. My aunt and uncle would always go on late night noshes where they lived in LA. Then, they'd wrap up the free bread on the table and take it home.

  9. Oh, God, Ron, "noodge" is too kind a term for that loser: Idiot, moron, dillweed, imbecile, and crackpot are just a few that come to mind. And you make a truly excellent point about the noodge mentality--or lack of it--they really AREN'T acting out of genuine any concern! They're acting this way because they suck! Keep taking your pictures, buddy, and don't let the noodges grind you down! Take care!

    What an objectionable woman! I'm glad you had the last say.

    'They can‘t wait until summer gets here and then they complain about the heat. They complain about the cold of winter. They complain about the snow. And they complain about the rain. The only time they don’t complain is when it’s 75 degrees, zero humidity, sunny, and the barometric pressure is perfect.'

    Yeah, I'm definitely a noodge ... but I guess I'm a nice one 'cause when I give advice I I never jab fingers with a 'do this' attitude. Pleading not guilty to everything else, your Worship.

    And if you find out I'm lying you may smack my ..... hand.

    "Good for you to confront that noodge!! She was probably on the phone telling her neighbor about it 5 seconds after that last slam."

    HA! Yeah, and I bet you're right!

    "That actually happened to my girlfriend. She was taking pictures at a fair and someone complained and security had to talk to her."

    OMG, you're kidding me? I can understand someone getting upset about having photographs taken of THEM, but I was only taking a photo of a public azalea garden!?!?

    "It's funny because sometimes I get called nudgey by Ron. And I do get that way... you know, just a little on edge sometimes."

    Well, I think we ALL can get like that from time to time. But, what I'm referring to is a 24-hour, 365 day of the year, naturally born NOODGE - HA!

    " But thank goodness I'm just a bit of a nudge and not a total busybody NOODGE! They are different things!"

    Exactly! They ARE totally different things.

    I LOVE the term; noodge! I think I first heard it from one of my Jewish friends when I was living in NYC.

  23. So much for "the city of brotherly love!" She sounds like Everard Proudfoot, the grumpy old lady hobbit of The Shire. (http://www.islandbreath.org/2011Year/06/110616proudfoot.jpg). Too much Tolkien for me!! Or maybe too much of the Longbottom Leaf?

    I kid, I kid. Just say no!!

    Noodge sounds similar to scrooge, and the definition also fits.

    NOODGE.

  36. have heard the word before, probably somewhere on t.v., i certainly don't remember any of my friends using that word. anyhoo, i would have loved to have been there watching you and this woman exchange glances and then you finally speaking up. i don't like peeps in my business so i don't put it out there... but i do work with this one woman who needs to know everyone's business and asks questions, not because she cares but because her behind is nosy. i don't give her anymore than i need to and usually leave her head tilting from side to side in confusion wondering when i will give up additional info. i don't and she usually goes away after her head gets tired of moving like a broken bobble head doll. nosy peeps have no life i guess.

    " Uph....YOU don't belong here!"

    Society Hill is very particular about WHO comes there. It's like they've got 'watch dogs' posted throughout the streets!

  38. A few years ago here on the Riviera I was exploring the surroundings and went on this cute cul-de-sac. There were many dogs so they gradually all started barking. This must have - or not this but my appearance - caught this one noodge's attention. She came onto her gorgeous balcony and told me to get the hell out of there since it was private property. "Sinon j'appelle la police" (threatening with the cops... yay!) I still don't know if that is right or not. I'm almost sure it isn't and that my taxes actually pay for her asphalt. I just wanted to admire... Noodges huh!

    Ron, I never heard the word "noodge" but it sure is funny! Although the actual "action" is NOT. I had a noodge that lived across the street from me. I don't know what was worse, her nosiness or her complaining. When she moved out of the neighborhood, she would drive through our plan just to see what was going on! At that time, we were remodeling and adding on an 8x10 closet, but no one knew what it was. It drove her nuts (her husband told me) he also said, MaryJo, go in and see for yourself what it is. I'm sure they won't mind! (he was joking of course because he told me the story...he knew she was a noodge too!)

  43. Oh, definitely a Gladys. *shaking head* Some people's kids, eh?

    I get people getting nervous over having photos suddenly appear of them--I especially get them being way nervous if someone's aiming the camera at their child or grandchild. I never do that....ever. I have permission or I stick the camera away until they exit. It's a courtesy thing I guess.....I know what kinda evil monster I'd potentially turn into under icky circumstances if it was the Bug. But a flower?! Ummm...in a public garden? Without the courtesy to ask if there were concerns?

    Meddling, inconsiderate yente.

    *nodding* :-/

    I had a grandmother that used noodge on occasion, more oft than not it was yente--geeze, I'd forgotten all about noodge until it showed up here. Not sure why it's not used more frequently considering there seems to be an abundance of 'em around this neck of the woods. Plenty of room for yentes and noodges. LOL

    But just for the record.....There's a whole lot of kvetching that happens about the weather here. It's Iowa, it's farm country.....it's what they do. However, I don't call 'em noodges. I call 'em farmers. LOL

    In this household, I call 'im Mr. Grumpy Pants. :-/
    Or he-who-no-longer-loves-the-weather-channel.

    He's not a farmer. I can do that. LOL

    Man...reminds me of my run-in with a security guard while photographing the sights downtown. I was on the sidewalk and he comes up waving his arms telling me that I'm not allowed to take photographs. After a bit of conversation I finally snapped and got up in his face. Let me tell you, that was bordering on a near violent scene, but he (luckily) backed down and backed off.

    It was a bit out of character for me. I guess I get upset at others trying to take away my rights. I guess I'm funny that way ;-)

  48. I had an uncle Noodgie once. He was just as you described. He was the empty shell of the cannoli. He always thought he was the special ricotta cream. But noooooooooooo! I had an ex wife who I would say was the queen of noodges. She was always there to let us know how wonderful she was. She thought she was a great cook. Once when I came home she had raw rice in a bowl on the table. When I asked what this was she said INSTANT RICE it did not need to be cooked. What a Noodge.
    Thanks for the memories.

  50. Yes. We had a nooge experience here a while back.

    Mo has a disabled badge in her car. Basically she has a damaged foot that can give way unexpectedly on her. When it does she can't walk on it at all.

    We went to a local shop and parked in the disabled bay, right next to the shop. As we walked towards the shop, a man came over, glared at us with a hateful look and started grumbling about people parking where they shouldn't. He was waving his arms about, still complaining as he walked over to our car and around the front to see if we had a badge.

    He was suitably embarrassed when he saw Mo's badge and just walked off still grumbling.

    Why do people make what others are doing their business?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Good for you! And I bet he felt like a total ass when he saw that badge!!!!!

    "Why do people make what others are doing their business?"

    I honestly think it's because they don't have a LIFE - HA!
