Greetings from Jury Duty!

Slice of Life, Day 2
#sol15
(writing & posting your slice) every day for the month of March
Thanks to Stacey, Tara, Anna, Beth, Betsy and Dana
for hosting!


I love getting mail!  However, a few weeks ago, I got some mail I was not so happy to get-NOTICE FOR JURY DUTY!

I am not a fan of this civic duty-sorry if I have offended you in saying so.  I realized as I read through the letter that my assigned date was March 2nd (oh, no, not during slicing month!).  I had to call in to see if my group was selected.  

So I'm off and away, all work and no play...heading downtown for jury duty today! (in honor of Dr. Seuss' bday I had to slip in a little rhyme)...

  1. You have me hooked. I'll be back to check up on you. The good news is that with JD, you have a little more time to read and blog than you would in school! Here's hoping for a quiet day of lots of waiting, reading and writing with a quick release to your normal life at the end of the day!

  2. A great opportunity to observe individuals.You sparked some memories from my own jury that would make a great slice. Enjoy your day the best you can.

  3. Now I'm curious what your day will be like. I like that there will be updates, like a series of slices for today. And what a good way of keeping from getting bored. What is the most "unique" question you will be asked on the questionnaire? Have fun?

    1. That's Voir Dire? When the lawyers ask their questions to seat the jury...we'll see

  4. I am still working on linking the right blog. I hope jury duty allows for some storytelling!

  5. I'm thinking that the silver lining to this day may be ideas for several more slices :)

  6. UGH! I once had to miss 4 days of school for a civil trial of neighbors fighting over bamboo. They brought in 2 bamboo experts! The judge was great and really hard on the lawyers, who really should have been able to settle it without a trial.

  7. I agree Amy jury duty stinks! Hopefully it will end quickly. I always said why not have retired people just go.....oops that's me now Shhh

  8. When I was first assigned to jury duty, I wasn't too happy either. However, after thinking about it, I realized I'd like having me on a jury if I were on trial. And I'd rather have ALL these bloggers on one if I ever had to be on trial. Pretty clear thinkers and fair, as far as I can tell - imagine some of the people that could be determining YOUR future freedom or incarceration! Yeah, give me a trial by a jury of my PEERS, even if it is inconvenient.
    I've got to come back later to check in and see what everyone was reading while they were waiting. This could be a lot of fun "people watching" time!

    1. I never even got to see what people were reading...and yes, I would want a trial by clear, fair thinking people too.

  9. After being there all week, I learned so much. I respect the jury process and the right to trial by jury. It's so different if you ever go through it. I can't even begin to describe how important knowing the roles of offices in government is in a situation like this.
