So, the last week I’ve been away on jury duty. I wasn’t picked for any cases (though it was a near thing), but I have spent more time than I would have liked inside a court room.
On my last day there, there was a draw for a 24 member grand jury, that was for a case lasting for an entire month. It was a daily thing too, so everyone had their fingers crossed, hoping that they wouldn’t be the ones picked. Everyone was praying ‘not me.’
I’m just glad to be done now. Now I can focus on more important things like finding a new job (lost the one I interviewed for because of jury duty– they can’t fire you if you’ve already got the job, but they can decide not to hire you) and saving money.
