Jury Duty

What's Jury Duty like?
It's like being on a plane on the tarmac in Baltimore in a heavy thunderstorm. You're flight is cleared for takeoff but you can't leave until the storm passes. So, you sit there, with seventy-five other grumpy people, cramming into one bathroom, eating expensive vending machine snacks, waiting for something, anything, to happen. The chances that you will be called to sit on a jury are approximately equal to being required to perform your emergency exit row duties.

I was only required to call in early in the morning of jury duty and if I was needed they would say so. If not I went to work at my regular times. I guess big cities are dumbfull and haven't figured things out yet. I imagine big cities will never figure things out. I missed two days for sitting on a trial out of two weeks. One of the trials was cancelled before we went in as the parties settled in chambers. Actually, I found the process interesting. Hope it doesn't wear on you too much kindern.
