Civic Duty

I received a jury summons. This little piece of mail fills most people with dread, but not me. Most times (and this was no exception) I’m called to serve at the courthouse downtown, a mere city block from where I work. It’s easy to get to, and if I’m dismissed early I can go to work afterward. I generally assume I’ll be dismissed early. Lawyers NEVER want me on their clients’ jury. It takes only one bit of information to make up their minds – that my occupation has something to do with insurance.

Assuming I wouldn’t actually have to BE a juror, I was counting on a few relaxing hours of crocheting. I may need to answer some easy questions about my occupation, lack of criminal record and lawsuits, etc. Then I could go to work for the rest of the day.
