I have come across this sentence:

Geht Ihnen Ihr Job auf den Wecker?

Can someone please tell me why both "Ihnen" and "Ihr" are used here together? I just couldn't figure this out.

Geht Ihnen x auf den Wecker?

means Is x getting up your nose? So x is subject and Ihnen is object in dative case.

Now the question is about the person's job. That's Ihr Job. And all together gives you:

Geht Ihnen Ihr Job auf den Wecker?
