  • bother (noun) is trouble


    to bother someone (transitive verb), according to the context, means:
    (1) to disturb s.o. (the most probable sense)
    (2) to irritate s.o.
    (3) to harrass s.o.
    (4) to worry s.o.
    (5) to psychogically hurt s.o.


    I am bothering you,
    gerund because at the moment I am busy bothering you.


    , am I? after a comma (,) and before a question mark (?)
    That's called a question tag.
    The question tag is often negative after a positive statement and negative after a positive statement.
    He is bothering you, isn't he?
    She doesn't bother you, does she?


    I am bothering you, am I? (I think the tag here is not negative because it is a statement at the first person).
