오늘의 표현은 To bug someone입니다.

If a friend keeps asking you to do something you do not want to do or cannot do, you might ask him to leave you alone or “stop bugging you.” In today’s conversation Mike says to Jason, “…stop bugging me!” This means that Mike wants Jason to stop annoying him and bothering him. 단어 ‘BUG’는 명사로 ‘벌레’라는 뜻이고요. 동사로는 ‘누군가를 괴롭히다. 귀찮게 하다. ’라는 의미가 있습니다. 예를 들어 모기가 윙윙하고 날아다니면 짜증이 나고 신경 쓰이죠. 손을 막 흔들어서 모기를 쫓아버리게 됩니다. 이처럼 누군가가 계속 귀찮게 할 때 끊다, 그만두다’라는 동사 ‘stop, quit’를 써서 ‘stop bugging me’라고 할 수 있습니다. ‘그만 좀 귀찮게 해. 성가시게 좀 굴지 마. ‘라고 말이죠. 오늘 본문에서 Mike가 Jason에게 제발 날 괴롭히지 말라고 했죠. “I said I can’t go. I need to concentrate on this, so stop bugging me!”라고요.
