Name That Fallacy

Toby asks…..

We have used some of your logic texts but have encountered an informal argument we thought may be a fallacy not covered in the books. We name it after the kid who uses it.

A certain camper wore the same t-shirt all week. When my Dear Husband, his counselor, told him on Thursday to change shirts, his reply was, “Why? This shirt was fine on Monday — you had no complaints on Tuesday — no problems on Wednesday, and now all of a sudden you are saying something is wrong with it?”

Is this an established fallacy we just are not catching? Thanks!!

Can someone name that fallacy?
