What happens when you forget that you have forgotten something?

That happens to me. It doesn't worry me at all, when I forget I've forgotten. It leaves me quite content. But when the evidence is produced (that I had forgotten), then it's back to 'argh' :hitting_wall /

Would this be similar to the government advice regarding crossing flooded bridges.
"If it's flooded, forget it"?
