Selfish?

I was out today with DH. Asked him to go to the local shop to get some food. He bought something for him and I but nothing for our kids! I am sick to death of thinking for him and increasingly wonder if I would be better off alone?

Were the kids with you at the time? What did he say when you asked him where their food was?

Yes! One was even next to him in the shop! He told me I had failed to tell him what to buy?

A one off or a pattern of behaviour?

Bit of both. I can't decide if he is deliberately ignorant or just can't be bothered. I increasingly feel it is a pattern of can't be arsed behaviour e.g. He recently started a few projects in the house and garden and they both seem to have stalled. I feel that if I wasn't there anymore, he would have to up his game a lot.

Same here a lot of the time - he just can't be bothered to listen properly and doesn't really think ahead in the same way as I tend to. Don't know why, but it really peeves me. So I have sympathy.
