Babooshkas are cantankerous old ladies in Russia who work in public buildings doing more or less nothing at all.

As living throwbacks to the Soviet era, they enforce both real and imagined petty regulations with Stakanovite zeal and enthusiasm.

Museums, cloakrooms, and metro kiosks are their natural habitats.
"That babooshka over there just told me that it's forbidden to look out of the windows!"
