WOTW: Nebbish

Nebbish:  noun, a person, especially a man, who is regarded as pitifully ineffectual, timid, or submissive

Found in The Broken Teaglass by Emily Arsenault:
"Every day I'd make a nebbish of myself, going down to that pointy, constipated cafeteria woman, and asking, Oliver Twistlike, "May I have some hot water please?""
