I have been called for Jury Duty this week. It means getting up early. I am a night owl. It means driving downtown. It means parking in a designated place, far away, not in handicapped. It means walking quite a distance to get to the courthouse. Then… more walking to get to the assigned court room. It is up on the second floor. I do not know if they have an elevator? With my mobility issues... not sure I can do this, without collapsing... before I get there. I hope there will be someplace, to sit along the way, and then… while waiting to go inside. Therefore, I am not looking forward to this. Not to mention the fact…. I do not want gruesome images in my mind. In my everyday life, I avoid blood and gore, at all costs. I hate hospitals. I do not watch TV shows or see movies that are violent in nature. I also do not read books or see news footage that is either. So I’m hoping I get picked for a boring civil case and not a murder. Of course since I’ll be sworn to secrecy I won’t be able to share it with you. Maybe the case will get settled before it goes to trial and they won’t need me. Fingers are crossed. I could get lucky. On the other hand, measly as the daily rate is… I could get paid for all this aggravation. I’m wondering what I could buy with my earnings?
