Default Jury duty

You know those 4 cold months we just got done with where I was sitting on my butt doing nothing? Well, they waited until I'm ready to go back to work to call me for jury duty! :lol:

They're messing with me, I know it.

I'm going to ask Hedge to come up north to help me catch up on the weekend.

79N to 422W, right? Will work for food.

Two Tomato sounds tasty right about now. There's a Mexican joint up there that's pretty tasty too.

The court system is such nonsense anyway. Mind as well go with the opposite of what should be done, just to mix things up!

If a murderer ends up back out on the streets, not your fault.

-

I wonder what a court system, one that could apply common sense, would end up accomplishing? I'm sure our judges would become 100% scarier.

LOL! I just told someone today that Wexford is too far for me to travel.


I can't recall the name - it wasn't particularly "nice", but the food was good. Looked like an old fast food place or something - lots of glass... not so much of a "nice restaurant". I know someone who lives near the junior high (I think) and have been to each of those places once.
I didn't realize exactly where you were located until the other day when I checked out your website again.

I've driven past you a lot over the years, but we get on the 4 lane just past Duke's Sport Shop headed up to Sharon.




As for jury duty - are you OK to do that - what with your surgery recovery and all? (hint hint)

Just say you hate everyone and believe public hanging should come back....

They'll show you the door pretty quick.

Check this out- http://www.wikihow.com/Get-Out-of-Jury-Duty

I like this "Tell the judge you'll make a great juror, as you can spot guilty people just by looking at them."

I'm sure that there are hundreds of ways to get out of jury duty....just make the judge think you're a complete retard who hates the american court system.

No way. If I were on trial I'd surely want someone awesome like me in the jury box to keep things cool. I don't want out of it, I just wish it were a few months ago when I wouldn't lose any cash.
