COURT UPDATE- I was called in to Jury Duty at 9:15 and just found about the case at 11AM. They are saying it’s a 3 week commitment and as much as I love to help I think my business would greatly suffer. I hope they let me go.
I have jury duty and am looking forward to it. I know that my work will pile up in my office, I understand that I’ll probably be sitting around for hours, I know that I might even lose monies to participate but I’m still drawn to this service. Let me explain why I think I might not be strange.
(1) CIVIC DUTY- I consider it a great honor and responsibility to insure that justice is provided to all our citizens.
(2) FREE TIME- I have no excuse not to read more and make those calls that I have put off.
(3) INSIGHT- I’m interested in discovering all the tidbits about our court system.
(4)A TRUE BREAK- I have so much to do at work and at home that I sometimes don’t give myself a moment to take a break and smell the legal briefs.
