Please read the passage and answer the question. Please have many other people do so as well. I'd like to see what many people have to say in response to this question. Thank you.

Fred is a very absentminded. He needs to be reminded of lots of things. But, when you remind him, you need to be very direct. One morning you and Fred find that there is no milk in the fridge. Fred says “When I go to the store, I’ll get milk”. Later that afternoon, Fred remembers to go to the store but forgets to buy milk. Remembering that Fred is very absentminded you decide to patiently remind him of what he said. What do you say to Fred? In the blank space below, please write down exactly what you say to Fred when you remind him of what he said.

You: _________________________.

Fred, you must make a list of things to do during the day. This morning you said you were going to get milk, but you forgot. If you'd had a list, you wouldn't have forgotten.
