I've posted before on the great sadness of my life. I've never gotten a letter telling me to show up at the courthouse for jury duty. Ever. I'm 24 years old, and never been to to the courthouse for jury duty.
So imagine my excitement when I get a letter a few weeks ago! I was so incredibly excited about it - but I didn't tell anyone because I didn't want to jinx it. My letter said I was alternate which isn't the "A Team" but I'll take what I can get.
As an alternate, I had to call at 11 to find out if the B team was needed, and if so, I would need to be at the courthouse at 1:30.
Last Tuesday I woke up and ran some errands and at 11:00 sharp I was home and on the phone.
Only to find out they didn't want me.
How am I supposed to do my civic duty if they never want me?
My first letter was a total bust.
