Italian term or phrase: nessun capo a soffiargli sul collo.
La sua zona coinprendeva già l'intera contea di Pamlico, il che voleva dire
viaggi interminabili per le strade più noiose nella storia dell'umanità. Ciò nonostante
era di gran lunga il miglior lavoro che avesse mai trovato. Molto meglio dell'edilizia,
del giardinaggio, dell'autolavaggio e di qualunque altra cosa avesse fatto dopo il
diploma. Lì aveva aria fresca dal finestrino, musica a tutto volume e nessun capo a
soffiargli sul collo. E anche la paga non era niente male.

  -> Спасибо!

agree  Assiolo: Да, точно, "и над душой не стояли начальники", "и никакого начальства над душой", "и начальство не дышало в затылок".
20 hrs
  -> Согласна! Только опустила бы "чтобы", поскольку, насколько я поняла из контекста, речь идет не о желаемой, а о реально имевшей место ситуации. Спасибо!
