The act of telling somebody to remind you to do something to either make you look like a good person because it is a good deed. Or to pass on responsibility so that you can blame them when you forget.
"Steve, remind me to visit the old people's home on Christmas"
"Ted, you don't care about old folks, thats such an empty reminder to make Janice like you"
Doctor: "Nurse, remind me to avoid that blood vessel"
*blood spraying and alarm bells*
Doctor: "Why didnt you remind me, this all your fault."
