While watching Goodfellas for the first time ever, I have stumbled upon the expression:
"... and I am breaking your balls..."
(for context: Clip from Goodfellas)
Since I am Italian by birth, I was wondering whether the above expression might have something to do with the quite common:
"Non rompermi i coglioni."
which literally means "Don't break my balls." but is used when somebody is mad at someone else to signal him to stop doing whatever he is doing that annoys him.
Does anybody know something about any connection between the two expressions?
