    Post Question: I have two questions.

    Example.
    Dr. Laura: Is your sister a little bratty and petty in general? I mean, is she a little thorn in the side of you guys in the family in general, or is this a very unusual behavior?

    Question.
    I wonder what the following means.

    1. bratty and petty
    2. thorn in the side of you

    Default Re: Question: I have two questions.

    bratty - spoiled, expects to get what she wants
    petty - gets annoyed about little things easily
    thorn in your side - something that is constantly irritating
