Pronunciation: "Act" + truist as in altruist.

Sentence: Don't worry, dear. He won't be such an actruist once the dishes are done.

Etymology: Derived as an antonym of altruism, which is an unselfish concern for others. Actruism is an apt word, as an antonym, as his actions are the opposite of those of an altruist, as his behaviour is a self-serving "act".
