    Greetings

    My sentence for translation: “He keeps on picking on me because I'm poor.”

    I.e. simply because I'm poor and my clothes are shabby, he keeps on and on saying nasty things to me and generally giving me a bad time - quite unjustifiably, of course.

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Simon

    To pick one is "sataşmak" in Turkish. "Uğraşmak" may also be used.

    Fakir olduğum için habire sataşıyor bana/uğraşıyor benimle.
