Please correct me How can I say someone remind/remember me to do something? Please correct my sentences if they are wrong - remind me to buy some flowers on the way to the hospital. - remind me on the way back to call Josh. - remind me on the way home to go to the store and get me some cigarettes.

All of those sound fine.

The third one depends on dialect but the more standard way is "Remind me to go to the store and get MYSELF some cigarettes"

Remember doesnt work in this context. You could say "make me remember to...." but this sounds a little unnatural.

Many ways to say these phrases. If you're already having a conversation and the other person knows the context, you can use short sentences. Remind me to buy flowers on the way. Remind me to call Josh. Remind me to go to the store for cigarettes. OR Remind me to get cigarettes at the store.

- Remind me to call Josh on the way back. - Remind me to go to the store and get some cigarettes on the way home. Alternatively you can also say - On the way back remind me to call Josh.
