....and I don't have jury duty! The jury system is a great thing, it's even an interesting process, but it still doesn't mean I want to be there.
I did have to go in yesterday, and I have to
say that I was impressed with my fellow jurors. No one WANTS to be
there, but aside from two people who sounded like they were trying to
get removed, during the questioning everyone really did take the process
very seriously. I was lucky enough to be at the end of the line for my
particular panel--which meant that for me to be impaneled as a juror
would have required the dismissal of 41 other jurors, which I think
might have resulted in a mistrial--so I got to watch the process without
really being involved. Unfortunately, it meant two hours of sitting on
the hard benches in the back, but at least I was saved from two additional
hours on that bench by some sort of hiccup in the trial while we were
on break, and we were sent home shortly before noon, and I spent the
rest of the afternoon on the heating pad. I have to call in the rest of
the week, but it's unlikely I'll have to go back. Civic duty or not,
that hurt my back.
