When someone lashes and is more grouchy than happy for the smallest of things, a person who is hectoring usually shuts themselves off from the outside world after having a rant or tantrum. The Act of hectoring is also how quickly a person can get upset and how abruptly their tone of voice goes from calm to angry in a matter of seconds.
Roommate 1: Hey, I forgot to take the trash out today, sorry dude.
Roommate 2: WHAT THE HELL, YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THAT IS!!!
Roommate 1: I said sorry dude, I completely forgot.
Roommate 2: I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT ANYMORE, LEAVE ME ALONE!!! (walks away)
Roommare 1: Geesh..that escalated quickly, I wish he would stop hectoring and just get over it.

Hectoring is when someone uses a bullying tone to give direction. An aggressive way of telling someone what to do.
Matt: "Mrs Brown was hectoring me so much today about handing in the assignment."
Sam: "Mate, you should just hand it in, save yourself from hearing her go on and on about it."
