The Good Man giggled when he brought the mail in the house.

*hee hee hee* I heard him, sneaking up on me.

Why? Why would such a nice man be so cruel?

Wanna know why he was snickering?

Because I received THIS in the mail:

Oh fine. California has instituted the “one day or one trial” rule of jury service. Much better than the days when you were “on call” for a whole week.

The Good Man was giggling especially hard because just a couple weeks ago HE was on the hook for jury service. He called in and wasn’t needed, so he’s feeling pretty darn good about himself for the next 12 months.

Oh well. Just another of the joys of being a grown up.

    In NM we still serve for about 3 months. On Monday at 9:30 I have to go before the judge to "show cause why I should not be held in contempt of court for failing to appear for Just duty". Might end up with a fine or in the pokey.

    I will grovel as much as I need to.

    New Mexican – Whoops!

    Word has it they don't serve green chile in NM prison. Pure torture. Better show good contrition! :)
