Hello, I received this email from someone I was in love with, but we are not longer together. Could you help me translating the last expression?

"Mr. Wright has banned me from talking to you because I have managed to get hold of a clicking pen!"

Many thanks!

    Welcome colombiana10.
    When people are thinking of something/someone else and not concentrating on work, they click the top of a ballpoint pen in and out and make an irritating noise which Mr. Wright does not like. It suggests to me that your friend is thinking of you all the time.
