I like to think I am a responsible citizen, doing my due diligence daily to help keep our free and democratic society functioning like a well-oiled machine.
Then? I was summoned to jury duty.
There doesn’t seem to be a lot of neutrality concerning people and jury duty: people either love it and wonder why they haven’t been lucky enough to be called up or people dread it like the proverbial plague.
I am a bit ashamed to admit publicly that I fall into the latter category.
However, “feeling put out” is not a valid reason for being excused for jury duty so like so many other Jefferson County residents, I showed up to serve my two weeks and while not exactly the highlight of my spring, it also wasn’t as brutal as I had anticipated.
Here are some survival tips, should you be called to serve.
The above helped me survive my two weeks at the hall of justice. Should you be called to serve, I hope it does the same for you.
I won’t be eligible for jury duty for the next 24 months, which makes me a very, very happy girl.
Now, how to spend my windfall of $62.50?
