As you all know, it was my first day for Jury Duty, and although I was called, I did not make the Jury so I must return in two weeks to see if I qualify for another Jury.
My overall opinion of the court was a good one. Everyone is so nice, and the Court is very well run. I had only one complaint…the benches!
I think there must have been about 75-85 people on Jury Duty with me, and they brought us into an auditorium where there were hard wooden benches! And I mean hard!!!
After we watched our jury Instruction video, we were sworn in, and then began the process to pick the two juries. My backside was feeling first pain and then numb! I thought my backside was well padded, but I was very wrong!
At the end of the morning, I was told to report back to court in two weeks to see if I can perform my citizenly duty and be a juror. If at that time I still can’t find a trial to hear, I will have to report two weeks after that.
I will mention here that I was dressed very nicely in a suit. My hair was done and I had just a touch of make up. One woman came in a velour track suit and slippers and she told me that this was as good as it gets for her! She made me smile!
Oh yes, and she made an active jury! I expect her to be a Foreman!
