comment Is “as energetic as a stalk of whipped asparagus” an idiom?
@JAM Sorry haven't been on here for a while! The original phrase is from a translated literary work "Mother's Books" by Daniel J. Bauer (the translator) published in a 2004 autumn issue of The Taipei Chinese PEN. The original work was written by Francis Sen-yao LIU in Chinese.

comment “Give someone trouble” — what does it mean?
@Irene I couldn't find any definition for the phrase so I was a bit sceptical about my interpretation, but now I'm glad at least I understand the phrase correctly. Thank you! :)

@AndrewLeach Thanks for the comment. :) If it sounds like a non-native term to you, what would be a better word to use in English that sounds more natural, if any?

comment What degree of status does the label “office lady” imply?
Yes, I guess that's a bit tricky...I wouldn't think office lady has a derogatory meaning personally either, but when I googled the phrase, it came back to me with a wikipedia page, where it is defined as "a female office worker in Japan who performs generally pink collar tasks such as serving tea and secretarial or clerical work." So it got me thinking...but thanks for your answer! It's very useful to me :)
