For the first time ever, I was called to jury duty.

 

Duty.

 

You can almost see the smirks on the faces as the people step off the elevator.

 

Jury Duty

 

Call of Jury Duty. Yeah. That's my new video game idea!

 

You're piloting an airplane , stacking blocks, or maybe playing online poker when...

 

The screen goes blank! Your inbox dings, and you think," hmmmm, I wonder what this could be?"

You open the mail and...

 

JURY DUTY; Shadow ops gold ninjas revenge III !!! For xbox ps2 and wii

 

Your mission; you have 30 days until civic duty! Prepare, escape, avoid, or deny. Use doctors, lawers, employers, friends, or your dog, mr snuggims, to conquer the enemy!!! Prepare speeches, answers, notes, lies , and statistics to convince battle hardened judges to strike you from the roster!

 

See your vacation days dwindle, paychecks disappear, bosses anger, sanity evaporate!!! Earn $9 and mileage every single day!!!

 

As with anything governmental, my actual involvement during those 2 days was roughly 12 1/2 minutes including filling out the screening form, group questioning, and then individual questioning. I learned about knitting, played a tv game show, watched the talking heads drone on about stuff and had some good donuts. Now as a bonus, I learned that Stephenos son was fooling around with the babysitter, but Sammy, his fiancé,doesn't know until she sees the photo! The sitter is pregnant, when she is confronted she falls off the stairs, fortunately, it was just a dream sequence but Sammy is ignorant of the affair.

 

Poor girl:(

 

$9.00 and mileage.

 

Please let me write off my missed time from work and give me a slice of pizza but not 9 bucks and gas.

 

Oh I forgot, free parking. I drive a full size van that doesn't fit in your garage. Try backing up 100 yards against traffic only 30' from the exit because the last beam is 2" lower the the rest.

 

I was dismissed. Too ugly. I guess it is a crime.
