What does it mean when someone says that something bugs them? Well, bug is another word for insect, you know, like a spider or a fly. Well, for many people, those small creatures are annoying, right? So we use the word bug as a verb to mean “to be bothered or annoyed.”
- My neighbor plays loud music all the time. It bugs me!
- The boss is always bugging me to work overtime.
- Jack said that his wife has been bugging him to buy a new car.
