Sitting in the Palm Beach County courthouse awaiting my civic duty. Generally, when you mention “Jury Duty” the conversation immediately turns to how to get out of it. I don’t mind so much. This is my second time. Last time I made it to the second round of the selection interviews. Not sure why I got DQ’d but I would imagine it had something to do with the line of questioning about “Whose testimony would you give greater creedence to. A police officer or someone with a prior arrest record.” duh.
In today’s tech world and thanks to free wifi, I can do most of what I need to do workwise while sitting around. I will have to scope out an outlet before the day is over though. So, if I can do my job PLUS a civic duty, why wouldn’t I? I would hate to get wrapped up in a two month grand jury murder trial though.
Jury duty-a lot like “working” at Starbucks…only the coffee isn’t as good.
