baulk & balk

Quotations:


-- Just peeves me off. Had a pax last night that baulked when I asked her to wear her belt, then balked when I dropped her off on a side street that was far safer and a bit more legal than directly in front of Newtown Station...

Anyway, I sent a msg via the 'change rating' option. See what happens.

Definitions:

baulk:
1. to stop suddenly and refuse to go on, especially when faced with an obstacle;
...
