I was just saying it to bust Q's chops like I often like to do
I am quoting Charlius here, I wonder if this an idiom. What are chops here?
Sounds funny, I love funny! lol
We might say, "He is always busting my chops" to say that some guy incessantly gives me a hard time. This is often said of people in the work environment.
There are at least two different contexts. One is to harrass someone and the other is to punch them in the mouth. Give me a moment to post a link to the other context.
Just make sure that you stick to the first context.
yes, it is- it is saying is pulling someones strings- in this case Charlius- in other worlds the author gets a kick from getting a reaction out of Charlius (usually angry one ). chops is jaws you know how the jaws move when we humans talk.
