There's no "I" in "WE"

I know that all couples use the “We” word a lot:
“How are you?”
“Oh, we’re fine.”
“What are you doing this weekend?”
We’re catching up on all of the episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians we've missed.”
“You look great!”
“Thanks!  We went on a diet and lost 15 pounds! We didn't even have to try very hard!”
And so on and so forth.  It seems to be a normal evolution of coupledom and I get that.  But lately husband has started to use “We” in a particularly annoying way.
Did we pick up the dry cleaning?
Did we call the cable company and beg them to extend our DVR package?
Did we pay the rent yet?
Did we go to the grocery store and buy enough yogurt and granola for a small army?
Did we buy wedding/birthday/Christmas presents for every single person in the entire family? 
Basically every time he asks if we did something, he’s really asking if did it.  I usually don’t let it get to me but at times it just makes me crazy.  And As the Christmas frenzy gets even closer and my to-do list grows ever longer, whenever my husband asks me if we did something, I feel like tossing that to-do list at him and seeing how much of it gets done.  My prediction if I do that?  We will both be home from work next week with black eyes and food poisoning.
