"Why did Danny buy a newspaper?"
"To/For get the change."

I don't know if it's better TO or FOR, in this last sentence... Can someone help me please? :))

    "To get the change" or "for the change" would both be grammatically correct. Or just "to get change."

    "For get the change" is not correct.

    You can say for to get in the sense of in order to get if you don't mind sounding like someone who lived in the sixteenth century.

    Thanks everybody! c: I knew "to" was better, but I had a doubt when I remebered "What for?", that has almost the same mean of "Why?", and so I confused myself :) Thank you!
