Examples of word nag

I had nine messages I needed to reply to, and six messages I need to print. 13 messages remained in my inbox that required action of some sort, which is a number I can live with and a realistic number of tasks to have in a short-term nag list.

And if she continued to scream like a banshee into his earâ€”well, maybe that was partly in revenge for being called a nag.
Sad thing about this is, that even in this day and age, there are people who can read and who probably watch the news now and then who will fall for this old nag, which is even older than the Nigerian Scam aka the 419 con.
