Plea Bargains Can Be Oh So Disappointing

I was super excited because I got called for jury duty. In the past I was exempt because of school or was just dumped in to the pool of extras. This time I was assigned to a court. I figured they would immediately strike me during voir dire for being a lawyer or I would be in the middle of some super long trial. Either way, I was really looking forward to it. I know a lot of people rank jury duty with having teeth pulled, but I think it would be super fun. I was so sad when the clerk called me today to tell me I wasn't needed anymore. I'm guessing the criminal copped a plea. Stupid criminal.

Trust me, sitting on a jury in a trial is no fun. Afterwards you no longer wonder why the justice system is so messed up.

I guess I am going to have to take your word for it. the truth is, they probably wouldn't ever take me because I am lawyer. I know I wouldn't want a lawyer on my jury...
