SH: Are you already doing laundry?
Me: Yes. It's Thursday. I do laundry every Thursday.
SH: But I had some dirty socks.
Me: How could you get dirty socks between going to bed last night and now?
SH: They're from yesterday.
Me: Why didn't you put them in the laundry last night?
SH: You didn't tell me to.
Me: Why should I? You know I do laundry every Thursday.
SH: You need to remind me.
Me: I hereby notify you that I wash clothes every Thursday. If you want something washed, put it in the dirty clothes Wednesday night so I can put it in the washer Thursday morning while you are still in bed.
SH: No! You need to tell me every time.*
Me: Nope. This is a universal notification.
