I am in the seventh circle of hell. The normal thing that happens with jury duty is you get called, you sit in a room, you get sent to a panel, they either pick you or they don’t and you get sent home. The thing that happened with me is, I sat in a room for half a day, got called, told the judge if I had to be on a case of that length I would lose my job, and then sat in a courtroom listening to a lawyer awkwardly flirt with potential jurors. Then the judge said, this will be continued tomorrow. SO, I get to go back tomorrow and sit and listen to a lawyer awkwardly flirt with potential jurors.
I almost peed my pants while waiting for the afternoon recess. If I hadn’t been filled with rage at the time I would have seen the humor… How many times as a kid did I almost pee my pants waiting for afternoon recess? MANY. How many times as an adult did I say to myself, fuck, I’m glad I can just get my ass up and go take a piss when I want to? NEVER. Because I DIDN’T KNOW ONE DAY THIS WOULD BE AN ISSUE. AGAIN.
Fuck civic duty. I want to be excused.
