trouble (one's) head with (someone or something)(redirected from trouble their heads with)
trouble (one's) head with (someone or something)
To concern oneself with or worry about someone or something. Often used in negative constructions. It's just a minor technical error that should resolve itself—wouldn't trouble your head with it. I know I need to stop troubling my head with such negative people, but I can't help letting their comments get to me.
