So today was my first ever jury duty. I’m a real adult, guys!
And… I don’t really get what the big deal is. Granted, I was only there for one day for a trial that was pretty simple, and I didn’t get a huge long annoying trial, and I did get a trial, I didn’t have to sit there all day and twiddle my thumbs, but… everyone always complains and I don’t get it. It was a day out of the office (which, granted, is going to bite me in the ass tomorrow) and I spent all of my waiting time reading Ender’s Shadow, which—how can you go wrong with that? And the court thing was interesting. Maybe it was just because it was my first time, but I actually found it interesting. Is that normal?
So yeah. I don’t really see what the big deal is.
Also I rewarded myself for service to the community by going to Burger King, so that was cool too. :)
