    Default Harry

    When I was grappling with a busy schedule of work yesterday, my son pestered me with a series of requests related to his excursion; this led to many errors in my work.

    Can you capture this in an axiom? ( covering my son's pestering, erros having crept in my work)

    Hi Dr. Appalayya

    What about something like, to pester someone to the point of distraction? Here's an example,

    Ex: My apologies for the typos in last night's email. My daughter was pestering me to the point of distraction while I was typing.
