A PAIN IN THE NECK: meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today's expression is: to be a pain in the neck

It means: to be very annoying. Something that makes you feel slightly angry or impatient.

Example 1
My boss is a pain in the neck; he constantly organises meetings and then cancels them 5 minutes before.

Example 2
Johnny!! Stop being a pain in the neck. Stop annoying your little brother!

The most logical translation to Spanish/Catalan would be "pesado"/"pesat".

I hope you have a good day!
