i had the unlucky "privilege" of receiving a jury summons in the mail recently. i was keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that i would not have to report, but as it turned out i had to report to the county courthouse on easter monday. gross. i was there for 9 hours on monday and then had to go back for a few hours on tuesday morning. it was completely ridiculous that the jury selection process took two days. i was bored out of my mind. what a glorious waste of time.
luckily, i wasn't chosen as a juror for the case so i was dismissed tuesday afternoon. i certainly hope that i don't have to go through that process ever again. i had a poor opinion of our local judicial system before all of this, and i have an even worse opinion of it now. i'm really glad that waste of time is over and that i can go back to work like normal today.
