to bother or nag

to break

to haggle

It's unclear whether this comes from the German word "hack", which means "to cut, chop, or strike" of the similar German word "hock", which means "to hit, chop". In it colloquial usage, this word can mean to nag, annoy, or bother incessantly, or also to to sell something. For all the unclarity around this word, it has a generally sense of negatively negativity.
