    Question "...always on my case..."

    If somebody says "why are you always on my case?", would it mean you are concerning yourself too much about what they do?

    Re: "...always on my case..."

    It means someone is constantly nagging or bothering you.

    "My mom is always on my case about keeping my room clean."
    "Ever since I graduated from college, my dad has been on my case about finding a job."
    "I can't wait for the weekend; my boss has been on my case all week."
