    Like+infinitive/gerund

    Hi,

    1. "I don't like friends calling me at work."
    2. "I don't like friends to call me at work."

    Can I build the next 2 sentences according to the above mentioned structures?

    1. "I don't like people telling me what to do."
    2. "I don't like people to tell me what to do."
    Thank you.
