Finding Out There’s No Jury Duty Produces Mixed Emotions
So, back in early November 2008 I received a jury duty summons for the dates of December 23 and December 24. This put me in a big slump because it meant I could do little as to planning how I’d like to spend my holidays and such. Still, everyone assured me that there would be no way in Mordor that a trial would actual be set for the holiday week. I shrugged and said I had to wait until the 22nd to call in and see what was what.
As you can see, the call went in my favor. No jury duty…for ANYONE. The courthouse shut down for the remainder of December. I’m pretty sure they knew they’d do this for some time so why make everyone wait until the last minute possible to alert them. Gah. The system makes no sense to me.
Until next time, jury duty. Until next time.
And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just raining
Ain’t no need to go outside
