The problem is, Fatima loses the list and she has to recall by memory what was written on the list. She is fairly confident that she remembers everything. It isn’t until the end of the day that Fatima and her family realize that she got everything on the list mixed up. Fatima feels like her day is ruined and that she will be punished for messing up. She soon realizes that her family is not angry, and they accept some of the responsibility for not paying attention to detail.
