I got nailed for jury selection for the 23rd of January. For 8:30 in the frigging morning. Not only on a day when I have to go to school, but on ELECTION frigging day of all days. Friggidy crap. On top of it all, I have to get my kid to school at nine yet be at the courthouse 40 minutes away at 8:30.
So I have to attend jury selection AND vote and go to school so I can be a more useful member of society AND be a good parent and get my kid to school. What more could my government ask of me?
