I have jury duty next week. I’m excited but nervous. Not nervous about the being on a jury part. Nervous about getting parked and finding my way to where I’m supposed to go and all that stuff. They try to make it simple and clear but I still expect I’ll be nervous peeing about twelve times in a row Monday morning.
I don’t know how jury duty works in TN, but here if you don’t get chosen on the first day you don’t have to go back. I’ve been chosen several times in the first round, but have always been rejected before the jury is empaneled. I’d like to serve on a jury just to see what it’s like, but I also don’t want to do it because it’s really difficult to hold someone’s fate in your hands. Take lots of reading material and maybe your afghan. And remember to turn off your cell phone in the courtroom. You don’t want to piss off the judge. :)
