Get out of my hair? (What's a good Haitian Creole translation), to get rid of someone who's cramping my style?

Get out of my hair (get away from me)
Retire'w nan kòlèt mwen
Retire'w nan kòsaj mwen

To get rid of an unwanted person (friend, enemy, a person who's being a pest)
retire nan kòlèt
retire nan kòsaj

Fanm nan te mare pye m, donk mwen retire l nan kosaj mwen.
The woman was cramping my style, so I got rid of her.

Mesye a t'ap ban m problèm, mwen retire l nan kòsaj mwen.
The guy was giving me trouble, so I got rid of him.

Poukisa w rete ak fanm sa a toujou?  Retire l nan kosaj ou non!
Why are you still with that woman?  Get her out of your hair.
