How to use bothersome in a sentence?

  1. David Pollack:

    This type of solution will conquer the market, because it addresses some of the most serious and bothersome issues for satellite operators.

  2. Rosalyn Jones:

    This is a very conservative market, and the team has always been very concerned about the look of the girls and things like that, but I’m telling you I’ve never seen and never heard anything derogatory. The girls are all professional women, they know the rules and standards and they know they’re ambassadors for the Spurs. And they’ve done so much in the community — camps, clinics, promotional activities. To take this away so suddenly, it’s bothersome.

  3. Jonathan Reiner:

    What is bothersome to me about this is less about this worthless botanical but more about the sidelining of scientists and the elevation of these sketchy characters who have access to the President and can tell the President that' something's magic -- Peter Hotez should approve it.' It's incredibly disturbing to me.

  4. Kathleen Rockney:

  5. Amanda Bynes:

    It definitely isn't fun when people diagnose you with what they think you are, that was always really bothersome to me. If you deny anything and tell them what it actually is, they don't believe you. Truly, for me, [ my behavior ] was drug-induced, and whenever I got off of [ drugs ], I was always back to normal. I know that my behavior was so strange that people were just trying to grasp at straws for what was wrong.
