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.
