Sounds like it's time for him to get a partime summer job, he needs his own money so he can see how far it DOESN'T go. He is a big boy, he can start making his own dinner. And if he doesn't, his problem. I doubt he'll do much that his parents ask of him, so to cure the boredom and attitude, he may need to get out of the house and start working for someone else. Give him the experience of a boss telling him what to do and he may have more respect for what you do. Then he may be more likely to listen to you since it proves to him that is the way the world works...someone will always being telling him what to do in the real world...might as well give him a taste now.
