    fussy

    SEKOI
    It seems the word has been used for
    a long time, but I think we can call
    it a slang word meaning 'fussy about
    trivial things'.
    "He borrowed one dollar from me over a month ago,
    but he hasn't returned it to me yet."
    "You are SEKOI."
    Something like that.
    Are there any interesting English equivalents?
    Thank you.

    I don't have any slang expressions for you but a couple of just standard phrases:

    You are being so petty about things.
    close-minded
    narrow-minded
    small-minded


    As far as your sentence is concerned you could use a nice little phrase like:
    to nickel and dime somebody

    ex. " He only owes you a dollar. Stop nickle and diming the poor guy."
