You, Madam, are a dumbass

I was at a side client's office last Thursday or Friday, helping them with a small problem. I had to wait around for a while because the software I needed was in another attorney's office. During that time, I heard the following conversation.

Client: Here's the paperwork you needed for my extension.

Attorney: Good. Now are we all set for your court date?

Client: You know, I've been meaning to talk to you about that.

Attorney: Ok. Is there a problem I need to know about?

Client: Oh no! Sorry, it's nothing like that. It's...well...Um. What is the date again?

Attorney: It's next Monday, the 20th.

Client: Awesome! Whew, that's a relief. Thanks!

Attorney: Is that a problem?

Client: Oh no! Not at all. I just kept getting my court date confused with the date of the Motley Crue concert.

Happens to me all the time. Although, usually its appellate arguments and They Might Be Giants. Still, same concept.

Motley Crue is really still around and playing?
