We use a past tense after ​'would rather' when we speak about the actions of other people, even though that action may be in the present or future:

I'd rather you took a taxi (instead of walking); it's not safe on the streets at night.

The film is quite violent. I'd rather our children didn't watch it.

Forget and leave

We use forget to say we accidentally left something behind.
We usually say leave if we mention the place.

Oh no! I've forgotten my book.
Oh no! I've left my book at school.
