Tricksters and other badly-behaved people or animals receiving comeuppance for annoying others is a common theme in Native American folklore. The actual content of the annoying behavior varies from tribe to tribe, but playing pranks on people, repeatedly pestering them, being nosy about someone else's personal life, using rude insults, and talking too much are some of the most common offenders.
