I got it in the mail today--the dreaded and much feared--Jury duty summons!
I am suppose to appear at the court house on May 16, Which is my birthday! Yeah, happy birthday to me! Read sarcasms here!
It's bad enough to be called to for Jury duty, but it get worse--we currently have No Parking at the court house! Because they are in the process of building a better and more roomier multi level court house in which to convict and sentence, those pesky criminals that we have so very many of here in Madera. And a multi tiered parking garage to accommodate it. And where may you ask are they building this multi level monstrosity? In the old parking lot! Where else! That's why we have no parking at the court house! And where will the new parking lot be? Where the old court house is(which use to be the old Lincon school 40 years ago)--I assume if they ever get around to flattening it!
So according to the summons I have to drive over to the Wal-mart parking lot and park my car there, and stand around wait for a shuttle that'll take me to the court house, and I'm assuming it'll take me back as well, as I sure would hate to walk all the way back to where I parked my car.
Well, that explains why there is no parking at Wal-mart!
Crap! More standing and waiting, and sitting and waiting, and waiting and waiting--it'll all be for nothing because I have never in my life been called in to a jury trial as a juror. It might be a interesting experience though, but I dread it just the same.
