From the Scottish slang word "bawbag", meaning (literally) scrotum (ball-bag) and (figuratively) idiot.

Bawbaggery is the result of all of life's obstacles, bureaucracy and annoyances.

These are usually the result of (and for the benefit of) officious, awkward bawbags.

Speed cameras, offside decisions and middle-managers are good examples of bawbaggery but the word can be used to define the bigger issues that cause life to be less than it could be.

Working for a living is bawbaggery of the highest order.

The act of being a bawbag or a complete dick.
Never a nice person, always someone that you'd like to see get said baws kicked baws being balls. So a bawbag is a scumbag. But the act of bawbaggery is walking about acting like a bawbag. Generally annoying the whole population.
Me: There that wee bawbag has just stole that wee guys bike
