Interested in Language
Suppose that I am talking to my girl friend through the cellphone sitting in my room.
But suddenly my mom enters to my home. I want to tell my girl friend that I have a person in my room bothering
me (my mom) and I will call you later. But I can't find the word.
I mean I can't find this word: a person who bothers or disturbs you while you are doing something.
Is it ok to use the word "nuisance" to refer it to my mom?
Look at my self made example:
Me: Honey, long time no see. I really miss you....
My girl friend: I miss you too Alex.....
(Suddenly my mom enters to my room and cleans my room)
Me: Honey, I will call you later.
My girl friend: Why? Anything wrong?
Me: (whispering) Honey, I have a nuisance (my mom) in my room.
My girl friend: Who's that?
Me: It's my mom.
My girl friend: Hahaha,(laughing) ok. Bye for now.

Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Sorry, but this dialog is the strangest thing I've ever read
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
Not a teacher nor a native speaker.
Anyway - to return to your original question: I don't think your mother would very much like to be called a "nuisance". Perhaps you could refer to her presence as a "distraction"?
I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
By the time I had girlfriends, my mother was not cleaning my room.
