Here is the post you have all been waiting for. My jury duty post! Of course, I say it tongue in cheek like… no one is really waiting for me to post, let alone post about jury duty. No one notices I haven’t posted about jury duty, either. I’m glad I straightened all that out for myself so you didn’t have to do it in the comment section below 😉
What I liked:
My days start at 10:30 am.
Typical lunch time: 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. The court itself is closed from noon to 1:30.
My days end no later than 4:30, sometimes earlier.
The District Attorney was the prosecutor, I got to see his pretty face every day. If I believed in love at first sight..that was it. Such intellect, beauty, and personality.
I went home for lunch.
Some days I even took a nap.
It was nice.
What I disliked:
The court room was always cold.
I didn’t have a name.
I was referred to as my juror number according to the seat I had.
I was unable to talk to anyone about the case.
I was unable to talk to my beloved readers about what went on inside the courtroom or my head about the case, for that matter.
Mostly, I was unable to talk to the District Attorney. Oh how I
loved admired him. (You do realize I am kidding right? Melanie would totally never ever fall in love with someone by the sight of them. It goes against everything Melanie.)
After lunch, I always found myself a little drowsy.
Cross examinations were full of objections and sidebars prolonging the case from 3-4 days to a whole week.
The jury deliberation room was freezing as well, fyi.
Tomorrow I will post about my experience-what I learned and a few funnies 🙂
