If you tell somebody to get off your back, you ask them to stop
finding faults or criticizing you.
“Hey, John. I’m bored. Come on, let’s go out and do something.
Sorry, I’m right in the middle of studying for a physics exam. I won’t be able to make it tonight.
You’ve been studying for a long time. Why don’t you take a break ? Come on! Let’s go ! Forget studying for a while !
Look! Get off my back! I can’t go anywhere!
OK. I’ll stop bothering you only if you promise to let me know the minute you’re finished.“
