Jury Duty

It sucks and rocks at the same time.

It sucks because it makes you really realize why you would never want to be God, judging every living thing. Just judging one human being is very hard (at least it was for me). Handing down a verdict of guilty is even harder. Fortunately though, the law makes it easy for you by being very clear. There is very little wiggle room with the law and, in my opinion for the cases I sat on, it's very fair.

Jury duty rocks because, while you may have learned a lot about the judicial system from school, nothing can compare to actually being in the court room and seeing how things are run. I suggest that, for those of you thinking of an excuse not to go, actually submit to the summons. You won't regret it.

Well maybe you will if you have other things to do that really are more important money or time wise. Cause they don't pay you much. And it does take all day. And a lot of it can be sitting around in a room with no cell phone or computer with a hundred plus other people bored out of your mind.
