So this came today. Official juror summons. Yep. Apparently my name was drawn by the United States District Court and the Southern District of Florida. Explain to me why my number never gets drawn for the Lotto. Sigh.
At first I thought, Well at least it’s in the summer. It won’t interrupt work. But then I checked the date. August 10. As in my last day of summer vacation. I have to report to work bright and early August 11. Matter of fact, I’m supposed to do a presentation.
I know, I know, civic duty and all that. But I’d be lying if I said I’m not crossing my fingers that I’ll call the night before and they won’t need me.
