On Saturday, I got my first-ever jury summons in the mail. Matt says now I'm finally a real grown-up. :) He got his first one — from our hometown — when he was a freshman in college, and he tried to tell them he was in school, but it turned out his summons was for like, the beginning of January and they were like, nope, you're on Christmas break and you're coming in.
Everyone always seems to be super bummed when they get jury duty, so of course when I saw the summons I was like, "aw man, jury duty!" But really, I'm kind of excited since this has never happened before.
So I won't be doing any of this:
And instead I will happily wait for hours with a good book and accept my $6 or whatever at the end of the day. (Okay maybe not happily. I do get bored kind of easily.)
(And hopefully I won't get picked, because I can't even watch crime shows on TV because they freak me out.)
Have you ever been summoned for jury duty? Anyone ever been chosen as a juror?
