Civic Duty

Well, I am back at work after completing my civic duty for three days - jury duty. Thankfully I got on a relatively simple assault and battery case. They were choosing jurors for a murder trial and some other long trial and that would have SUCKED. For one of those they are sequestering the jurors. I also managed to avoid a rape case. Whew...

You may call me Madam Foreperson from now on... :-) I volunteered for the job because noone else wanted it. Luckily we had a reasonable group so all I did was make sure everyone spoke. Heard horror stories of some man harassing/belittling two female jurors. Ugh.

Whew. Worked hard for my stipend!
