One never knows when the summons will call.
At least, I didn't.
But, the surprise came and 8:15 am today was the call to report for jury duty.
I watched videos about the service, hear a judge speak about the judicial system, waited, and, waited some more. In fact, 132 of us waited.
We were give a break for fifteen minutes to walk about Mt. Clemens, MI.
Fresh air sounded good.
When I returned we waited some more.
By 11 am, however, the receptionist said that we weren't all needed so she called out my number to conclude my jury duty.
With a letter in hand and a $13.01 check to arrive within three weeks, I left. And, she said she wouldn't call for a year.
So much for democracy.
A delightful experience relishing the time with other in the same boat.
