Jury duty today. Put it off four times, now figured it was time for my civic duty.
45-minute drive into the courthouse, 20 minutes to park.
Seated in assembly room that could hold about 1,200+, there were probably 150 of us total. Serious people-watching variety, too.
Anyway, by the time I actually arrived, I had psyched myself up for real jury duty. You know, law & order stuff… “Juror #7,” … maybe somebody trying to bribe me or something. I was looking for drama…
Not to be had. I was the first one released. Seems my questionnaire answers didn’t resonate.
Kinda bummed. Oh well… it still counted as “jury service.
Picture below was one of the Harris County deputy’s trying to take the 65 people selected in first panel and seat them by assigned numbers. Absolutely hilarious to watch — “who’s on first” paled in comparison.
Deputy, obviously, is the dude up front with the cowboy hat…
But that’s just me…
