    Do you have some context? I think "spotty" is right. Without context, it does mean pimply.
    "I don't need any spotty teenager telling me how to do my job!"
    It's irrelevant whether the person actually has acne.

    Similarly, one might say (though I wouldn't):
    "I don't need some incontinent old fart telling me what to do!"
    Again, whether the person is actually incontinent or not is beside the point.
    Both epithets are based on negative stereotypes, and are not necessarily meant to be literally accurate.
