Hold the door for her, don’t you know how to be a gentleman; what do you think you’re doing, wearing your hair like that?; only girls wear their hair long; I swear you spend as much time in the bathroom as a teenage girl; you should be playing sports on a bright day like this; don’t be ridiculous, boys don’t wear shirts cut like that; have you got a job yet?; boys your age need jobs; well, if you can’t find someone to hire you, offer to walk dogs or mow lawns!; are you going to prom?; well, why not?; your sister is, a nice boy asked her; just ask someone, it’s not too hard; those are skinny enough to be girl’s pants; I won’t let you leave the house looking like that; find a hobby, you do nothing in your free time; your sister can keep her room clean, you should too; you need to get more sleep; you never have time for anything in the morning; set your alarm earlier; when you’re dating a girl, never be pushy; let her always make the first move; do I look like I’m made of money??; learn when to stop; if you were a girl, it would be so much easier to parent you; a perfect man should know how to please his woman; just be yourself; you need manners; don’t say things like that; you always put your foot in your mouth; I don’t want to hear your petty gossip; so how is that friend of yours these days?; that’s sexest!; boys are always soooo pushy; sit down when you talk to people, your height is intimidating; the way you stare at me when I’m trying to talk to you is intimidating; are you trying to look gay?; it’s ok if you are; you need to work harder; you don’t know what it’s like to be this exhausted at the end of the day; did you have a hard day at school?; you don’t do enough for the family; you have so much potential just lying there; what do you want from me?!
