Yaboyou (野暮用 – Trivial Errand)

  • Yaboyou


    Today I had some ‘yaboyou’ (野暮用).

    ‘Yaboyou’ means a minor business to do or a trivial errand that you do not need to say.

    In most cases, people use this word in the latter meaning.

    ‘Yabo’ (野暮) means that someone is rude or something is tasteless, and ‘you’ (用) means “errand.”

    That is to say, ‘yaboyou’ is a word that means a minor errand on business or a personal errand that is tasteless.

    Incidentally, this word is often used when you do not want to talk about what you did/do in detail.
