Even my generally terrific James does this. He was going on the other day about how me reheating something not on a paper plate was going to make more dishes for him. I had to remind him that he does dishes about once per week so that wasn’t actually an issue. When I asked him the other day if he’d put his seltzer cans in the recycling before going to bed each night he said, “ I always do.” No, I had to explain to him. Every morning I pick them up and do it. That’s why I’m asking. It’s not that he believes that’s my job, at least not consciously, but he still somehow believes if it’s getting done that he must be doing it. It boggles the mind!
