I recently recieved a letter from the state of California. It was a jury duty summons. I’ve been on a jury once in my life and I must say it’s really not that bad. Though it does kind of get in the way as far as your daily life.
When I got the letter, I wasn’t too surprised. This was the third time I had received one. The last time, I was just within a year since my first summons, so I was able to get out of it. This time, I had to call a number instead of visiting the court house. So, I was a reserve juror, so to speak. After calling back for the past few days, I found out this morning that I wasn’t needed and I had fulfilled my jury duty responsibility. I was glad. Though, it wouldn’t have been a bad thing to serve again.
It can be a pain, but everyone has to do it at some point. Justice is what it’s all about!
And yes, I’m back from my little “unoffical” vacation!
