My But Things Have Changed

The last time I served jury duty was over 8 years ago. The jurors waiting room was hot and sweaty, the chairs were uncomfortable and the entire experience was a real PITA.

Today the A/C is kicking to the point I am tempted to put my jacket on, the chairs are large and comfy, free high speed Internet for your laptop or iPad (and computers for you to use if you didn't bring your own), widescreen TVs... This is not the Jury Duty that I remember.

With New York States no-excusal police, I can't help but think how much fun it would be to have a superhero serve jury duty ( in his secret ID) for a villain he arrested / apprehended. Might make a decent solo supers adventure of sorts. Not that I play supers (I do have the Icons PDF and it is tempting) but I do find the concept interesting.

Anyhow, we've already been told we will be here until 5 pm. Gonna be a long day even with distractions to be found.

  1. I got called last week, dodged the bullet on the call-in until thursday. Then got randomly selected for early dismissal! (lucky huh?)

  2. I Hate You! Heh

    chosen for pre-screening. Let's see if they want me after lunch ;)

  3. As an update the jury selection room is way too hot, even the lawyers are complaining.

  4. I think I'd be going mad and probably composing dungeony limericks. Good luck.

  5. well, i'm heading back tomorrow... no longer part of the main pool, i'm on a panel that they are choosing jurors for a case.

    and yes, it is maddening ;)
