An act of passing on information at one's leisure, and although it is meant to get through to one's head, it ends up pissing them off anyway.
"I hate it when my older brother lectures me. He treats me like I'm his son. I'm not dammit!

Stop lecturing me, I don't let my friends see my butt hurt in public, you're the butt hurt one!
