Mom is in Jury Duty This Week

13 Jan

IMG_0890

Poor mom. She’s in jury duty this week. She says a lot of people get called and try to get out of it. Although she would love to get out of it, she does know that it’s an important rite and freedom to serve. She’s good with that. The bad thing is that she never gets picked to serve on a trial. This will be her fourth time getting called.

She reported yesterday. She Β said the security check point she had to go to was worse than Ft Knox. Then after that line, she had to wait in another line to check in with the jury room. Four groups got called as potential jurors yesterday. Mom didn’t get picked for any of them so she waited…and waited…and waited.

But she came prepared. She read her book. She played games on her cell phone. And of course she text me when she was bored. So today she will be there again. In fact, she’s probably sitting there now waiting. And waiting.

Have you ever got picked? Any great stories you want to share?

PS. Mom says that the snack machine in the jury room needs to be like the one above. Maybe that way everyone can make it through the day of you know waiting. Snorts.

      Oh brother. I could help too. Mommy has been waiting all week to be called. She sits in a huge room with now probably a 100 close friends – snorts. While there and waiting, she thinks about all of the things she needs to get done at work. She is totally stressed so when she gets home we try to help her out. XOXO – Bacon

        bro I agree… that’s uncomfy. I remember someone wrote he will buy a special gift for his dog, because the poor guy had to wait all that time…I remember it was a really small gift what the dog got from that expense allowance…. a chwing bone or a tennis ball :o)

        LOL. Perhaps mom should have brought Hoo-Hop with her? She could have put him in her purse. At least she would have had someone to play with. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    If you weren’t worried about our justice system enough, I’ll let you know that I got called AND picked for jury duty last year.

    This sounds really boring. Your mom is right, they need a snack machine that is like the one on the pic. πŸ˜€ You can get called for jury duty here too, but our humans haven’t been that “lucky”… yet. MOL πŸ˜‰ xx Roxy & Tigerlino ❀

      Snorts. Bless your parents hearts. They are lucky. Mom is not enjoying herself. She said waiting is one thing. If she got picked for something would be really interesting. So far, she has never been picked for anything in all of the years she has went. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom would love to even be asked for jury duty. Her friends have and they all got out of it but mom really wants to be on a jury for a trial. Mom rem3mbers her Criminology professor saying we probably wouldn’t be chosen for a jury because of our background but heck…mom’s never been asked even! Mom thinks you’re really lucky but would hate the waiting too.

      Mom never gets picked either due to her “occupation” but yet they still call her. She just gets to sit and wait around for 3-4 days until they dismiss her. That’s icky. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom went to jury duty a few times. She also never got picked. She didn’t really want to be picked. She just wanted to be left alone to watch TV, read her Kindle, and eat snacks (Our jury duty has delicious snacks plus Keurig coffee all day). Hope your mom is doing OK.

    Love and licks,

    Mommy got picked once, long before I entered the picture. She says it was the worst experience of her life. She has a tough time judging people . . . unless of course she’s watching them on TV, and then she can judge all night long. πŸ˜‰

      Snorts. Exactly beautiful. I make the best couch juror for television. Mom says it’s nothing like television. It’s a lot of waiting. And waiting. And more waiting. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I always had very mixed feelings about jury duty… on one hand I would love to experience it but on the other I would be always scared I’ve got it wrong

    Had to do it once. Got picked for smaller case. That was enough for me. It is hard to decide someone’s life. At least for me.

    I have been called and turned down since I grew up here and my Dad was a deputy sheriff. Otherwise I have luckily dodged the bullet. Tell your Mom good luck from me!

    This is SO interesting. We don’t have the jury system in South Africa butt we BET that Sammy and I would ROCK at it. Now please tell us, how do they do a background check? Is it a questionnaire, an interview, do you have to submit a CV?
    Happy waiting Bacon’s mom.

      You get a letter in the mail that has a questionaire asking certain things. You answer it and send it back. That way they know a little bit about you before your jury duty week. Then you go and wait. I think I need to get mom to do a posting about it. Its very exciting – all the waiting – NOT. SNORTS. XOXO – Bacon
