If you’re a girl, and you want to be kind of funny in a time of great hardship, or at least mild annoyance, you should tell your friends that the great hardship/mild annoyance is breaking your balls. For example:
You say: “Man, these new shoes are breaking my balls.”
You mean: “My sneakers are giving me blisters.”
This term also works when talking about people like that dude in class that is always asking so many questions or your friend who just doesn’t get it sometimes.
When boys say that stuff is breaking their balls it’s gross, and they like sports too much. When girls say it, it’s a little bit shocking at first, and therein lies the humour.
