Well, I received a summons for Jury Duty today. GRRR. I don’t mind the whole civic duty thing, at least in concept. But I don’t understand why I get called every 5-6 years, while many others have never gotten called. So you go down to the courthouse, sit around and see if you’re needed. If not, repeat the next day. But it’s worse is if you actually get selected. Last time, I sat on a personal injury case (which is the norm out here in lawsuit hell). Over several days we did at most 2-3 hours of actual “work”, between recesses and sidebars and general sitting/standing around. Then, right as the arguments were winding down, they decide to settle. Wasted, wasted time. Did I mention it was a massive waste of time? Anyway, the image above is the courthouse.
