Katie: then mind your own business.

Katie: you shouldn’t do that.

Taylor: Mom

Katie: seriously, it’s disrespectful. Have you had any idea your Dad and I were doing it in this house? No.

Taylor: uh have you ever heard the word shut the hell up? No so now you’re saying it and in college, girls have their boyfriends sleep over.

Katie: (sighs offendly)

Taylor: can I have my door back?

Katie: of course. We realize your adults and you need to be doing adult activities.

Taylor: like what?

Katie: Doing things that you should be doing like taking out the garbage.

Taylor: (talks rudely) That’s it. I’ve had enough of you momming and daddying me. Now get out.
