So this week I am on-call for jury duty and last night I called in and had to be down at the court house this morning at 8:00. Bundles of fun! Then I proceeded to sit around the jury waiting room for 2 hours banging my head against the wall because I forgot to bring something to read or do. So I resorted to my 2nd favorite thing to do, people watching. Apparently when you put a couple hundred people in a waiting room who don’t want to be there this is a sign that we all must be united and the bitching begins. Most of these people I had seen walking to the courthouse from the parking garage recognized them by the extremely dejected looks on their faces which mirrored mine. Everyone saying a small prayer that they don’t get selected. I on the other hand wouldn’t care if I got selected it’s the hours of waiting around that drive me crazy. Not to mention the men who see this as the new Anchorage Connection place to meet singles – please I am not a morning person so just back away slowly and you may yet live to be selected by the judge.
“Survey Says! I’m still on-call for the rest of the week even though I was dismissed today.”
