Jury Duty


Col received a summons in the mail today for jury duty that will be taking place later this month. We can only hope he's either rejected, or it's a short trial. I'm conflicted when it comes to serving jury duty. I recognize it is our responsibility as citizens, but I dread the schedule conflicts it will cause. We won't have our car back by then, so Col may need to take the Vespa. Yes, the Volvo is still in Salt Lake with the part we need on nationwide "we have no idea when or if it will ever come in" backorder. The scooter option would be great anywhere but Phoenix, as it's still a bit scorching out.

What if the summons is for the trial of one of the serial killers that were recently arrested here in Phoenix? That would be no quick trial. Somehow, though, I doubt that they're already far enough along with that case to be selecting a jury. It seems like it usually takes a year or longer before the high profile cases make it to court. Everyone cross their fingers that's not it.

You can get out of it if you're a student. I did 3 times during my 6 year college career. There should be a box to check if you can't make it for some reason. Just like you are a student..which I think Coleman is, right? Just a suggestion.

the better the trial, the more money he will get for his book!!

Now that Col is aware of the student loop hole, I thought he'd jump all over it. However, believe it or not, he's actually excited to go. Depending on how much time it ends up taking, he may change his mind...

Maybe he is scheduled with Nate since we just opened one for him a few days ago also! Wouldn't that be funny.

They can sit next to each other and heckle like those 2 old guys on the muppets. Now THAT would be good times.
