Conversations with DH

My husband has this new habit that drives me bonkers -- he says "we" when he means me, as in you do it.

DH: We really need to get the laundry done this week.

Me: You mean me?  You mean I need to do the laundry?

DH: No, I said we.  Why would I mean you?  I said we.
Me: Just because you SAID we, doesn't mean you MEAN we. When was the last time you did a load of laundry?

DH: Four years ago?

Me: Yeah, that's what I thought.

DH: (crickets chirping)

He knows he does this, and we've even joked about this habit (which he emphatically denies lol). Has he stopped saying "we?"

Oh, my ex-husband used to do that.
"Maybe we could do laundry tonight?"
"Yeah, you mean we or me?"
No joke, I almost had to draw him a map to get to the washer/dryer the day I moved out. :)
Or my all time fave:
Do I have any clean socks left?
Um, well, when you opened your drawer this morning and grabbed a pair did you see others in there?

That's when you respond "We need to buy ME some really gorgeous Jimmy Choos and by "We" I clearly mean "you"!" :)

I like the shoes comment. Lol My dad used to do that to my mom all the time, so at least he comes by it honestly? : /
