Me // Anything going on this week?  (Troy speaks but I stopped listening)


Troy // I don’t have to go to dinner with clients tonight… (continues speaking but I’ve zoned out)

Me // That’s good, see you tonight


Me // Can you pick up some food on your way home… (Troy stops listening)

Troy //  I won’t be home until late, remember I have my client dinner tonight, I told you last… (I’ve stopped paying attention)

Later that night…

Me // Hey, you get those groceries I asked for on your way home?

Troy // SHIT, forgot, I’ll go get them now (putters around house for 20 min – it’s already nearly 11pm…then I hear the TV come on)

Me // Hey you going to get those groceries?

Troy // SHIT, forgot again…
