Forgotten about a child you put in time out? Gone about your business for a few minutes, only to discover them dutifully standing there 10, 15, 20 minutes later? Be honest!

Nope. My kids are never quiet enough to even give me a chance to "forget" they were there

Well kinda. I put my 4 yo on timeout and when I went to check him, he was asleep. In just a matter of five minutes. But he "weally weally didn't need a nap"
