    A word for sticky a character

    Hi
    I am looking for a word or phrase that describe the following character:
    some one who has an irrational or unethical request and insist continuously (despite the fact that the other person has clearly no intention or interest in following his/her wishes). The term in my native language could be translated as "glue" or "sticky".
    A clue or a guide in the right direction is very much appreciated.

    I can't think of a word or phrase for that type of person. I'm not even sure what you mean by "has an irrational or unethical request". The two adjectives mean very different things.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
