i swear

this is where i spent my morning hours last thursday...our county tax dollars at work
because i received this in the mail...
gut wrenching mail
which is never a good thing ... and guess which number i was?!?doesn't look like you're gonna get outta this one
the three cases that were scheduled to go before the judge and jury were settled by 9:13am ... and then all fifty-three of us were thanked for showing up to do our civic duty as if we had a choice and dismissed...

Love the quote! I have to remember it for next month when I have jury duty.

Hey, I see the American Flag hanging on your porch and that decal on your car bumper. That's the spirit juror #1. Did you fix them (show them) the American flag stitchery you brought to work on, just in case you got picked, eh!? Well, that is done for another year.....

I've never been called, either. Well, at least not since I've lived in OK. Once in TX I got called but had a small child at home and got out of it. Now I think I'd like to try it.

I have had several summons but have yet to serve. It might be interesting!
