Today was only a half day at jury duty. Two minutes before dismissal for the day (they are still picking jury members) I was called on to sit in juror seat 18. I believe this puts me in the pool of potential alternates, but I’m not sure. The lawyers will get to ask me questions next Tuesday to see if I’m suitable. While there could be worse cases to be on, I’m just bummed that I got picked at the very last moment before leaving. Plus that courtroom is draining. I’m not sure if it’s the light or not.
Anyways, at least my lawyer neighbors will be excited I’m doing my civic duty!

Somehow I’ve never been invited to serve. Ever. I guess they just don’t want me.

I don’t know how it is there, but here it’s tied into your voter registration. If you’ve voted in any recent elections they are bound to call you up. I can’t believe you’ve never been called! Some would call that extremely lucky…

I don’t know why they don’t want me. I vote in every election, I even write my representative, governor, and senators on a fairly regular basis. I’m full of civic cheer!
Nah, I’m actually glad to have not yet been called. It sounds boring as hell.
