The "talky" thing happens about the second time (3rd...4th...5th...etc) time I tell her to do something I shouldn't need to tell her to do more than once. If I want to lecture her? I wait til she's in the bathroom and can't escape. Since she has no compunctions about walking in on me, I return the favor. (Yes, we do knock to warn first, I've at least managed to get her to do that and wait for a reply, but it doesn't always seem to matter much what my reply is).
