To break someone’s balls

To break my balls!  –  Romper los huevos

stop ballsWhat does this idiom mean? ‘That someone is annoying another person by constantly criticizing, scolding or nagging them’

Truth be told this is what I have heard for the last 15 years:

”Janette when are you going to:

  1. Come home?
  2. Settle down?
  3. Introduce me to a special friend?
  4. Use a hairbrush?
  5. Use a bit of makeup?
  6. Wear a dress, a skirt, or anything other than trainers and a tracksuit?
  7. Learn how to cook?
  8. Stop messing about?
  9. Blah, blah, blah

So, it is safe to say, if I had balls, I would have been castrated years ago!  And no, unfortunately,  I’m not pulling your leg. My own flesh and blood, my mother, thinks I’m pathetic.
