The expression is that you wouldn't say "boo" to a goose &, as mentioned, a ghost would say "boo" to you, so the answer to your question (Do you say "boo to a goose" or "boo to a ghost"?) is neither.

BFN,

Not really. Ghosts don't exist geese do.
Saying boo to goose e.g shouting / yelling at a goose is said to scare them off. Wouldn't say boo to a goose means you're nice/timid/placid natured and you would not be so mean as to scare the geese.

In actual fact you are all wrong.

The expression is wouldnt say boo to a jinn!!

online dictionary:

boo [buː]
interj
1. an exclamation uttered to startle or surprise someone, esp a child
2. a shout uttered to express disgust, dissatisfaction, or contempt, esp at a theatrical production, political meeting, etc
would not say boo to a goose is extremely timid or diffident
