Today was my big day in court, awake all last night with excitement wondering what kind of case i would be on the Jury for, would it be a murder or even an armed robbery? or would it be a big jewel hiest.
With butterflies in my stomach i left early this morning just to be sure i would get there in time hoping beyond hope that i would be one of the few who would be selected.
I entered the court house and headed straight for the reception to report in, the lady there scanned my citation for what seemed like hours before looking at me with a smile on her face " you can go home" she said "you are not required anymore".

I had a friend who did it and ended up sitting in a room for 2 days before being told to go home.

But lo and behold, a summons came for me today, almost exactly a year later. They have it set up so you can inform them if you qualify for...
