Day 179 - Sis
Today I served, well I was one among thirty in my group who were chosen for a trial but didn't make the jury. I managed to dodge the bullet for three days this week but was notified that today was my turn and I had to show up at the courthouse by 8 a.m. It took a round trip taxi ride to fulfill my civic duty, (not cheap), five hours of moving and sitting in three different rooms plus the courtroom itself. The judge thanked us all for willingly, (snort!), serve. They picked only seven for this trial jury and the rest of us practically ran out of the building.
