    Call someone out on

    "I do chores, I help when I can, I'm polite when I want to be rude. But my mom always calls me out on the silliest things, things that aren't even my doing."

    - What does "call me out on" mean in this context? And "doing" here should be "doings", right?

    Thank you so much

    "Tell off", "reprimand" etcetera. "my doing" is correct.
