Starting Last Wednesday, I was sentenced to jury duty. Let me tell you, jury duty is not that bad.
Tuesday evening I called the special number to see if I had to report in the morning, but my number wasn't called. On Wednesday I worked from home until 12:15 until I had to call the jury number again, still no need for me to go to the court house. I continued working on Wednesday and was really productive.
Wednesday evening I called the jury line again for my Thursday assignment, nothing. When Thursday morning rolled around I decided to take Gretta on a nice walk and play with the neighbor dogs. We had a great morning together. When I got back to the house I checked my work email, but it seemed like there wasn't a lot happening at work, so I did some work around the house. At 12:15 I called the jury number again, still no need for me. I checked my email again, still nothing urgent to tend to. For the rest of the afternoon I worked around the house and periodically checked work email.
Thursday, 6:30 pm check in; No need to report Friday morning. Since I haven't rode my bike in 2 days, and there is no need to report to jury duty, I decided to meet the guys at Colossal for breakfast and ride into work with the group. Upon arriving at Q, I turned around and took the long route home. I could've stayed and worked for a bit, but since I had to check in at 12:15 I didn't see too much use. At 12:15 I called the jury line again, still no need to report. In fact they also said there was no need for me to report Monday morning. I have got to say, Jury Duty has been a pretty good gig.
Honestly though, I am trying to stay productive and work from home when possible; but it is really hard to not get distracted and do person stuff. Today I want to stain our new dining table and hang some curtains. Oh yeah, and I have to call the jury line at 12:15. Only 8 more days of jury duty to go.
