Jury Duty...

Jury duty. I’ve been called for Jury Duty. Do you think blogging about it will dismiss me? I’ve never been called for jury duty before. I’m not even sure what I’m supposed to do. I mean sure I got a card with instructions and a number to call but do you really think I read it all that well? I’ll have to be on the hunt to find the information the night before I’m supposed to call because really why would I want to be prepared when I could just wait until the last minute and then get all crabby because I can’t find what I need? I’ve got expectations to meet you know :-)

You know maybe they should start holding court cases like they do the reality talent shows (American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, etc.). The trial could be televised. The lawyers, the defendants, the criminals and whoever else is involved in this court room drama stuff could all give their performances and then the public could register their vote. Maybe the judge could be – well you know the judge and his vote would carry 50% of the weight. What do you think? At least it would do away with the jury and then I wouldn’t have to be worried about trying to find that darn card with the information I need!

Oh crap! Now that makes me worried that I am going to get 'the letter'. But at least we would have each other to talk to!! :)

I was selected and served a few weeks ago. I spent years getting out of it by saying I never had child care. It is long days but I really found the whole thing very interesting. Good luck

YUCK! What I learned while I was on jury duty, was that I was VERY GLAD that I never went into the "law field". It was so boring! Be sure you bring your knitting or a good book.
