I am on jury service this week.
Today involved sitting in a room for around 2 hours with multiple delays due to "legal argument." First ballot of 50 people called. Not me. (thankfully as this trial is 10 days long! I am panicking about library after 1 day let alone 10...).
A bit later sent home and told to come back at 2pm.
By this stage BORED. Very bored. Knitting needles had been confiscated. Wrote a letter. But even I cannot write letters for 6 hours straight. Forgot book at home.
Went home. Got uni work. Went back. Sat in room for another 2 hours. Trial on. Then trial cancelled. Then trial back on. Another ballot. Not me again. sat around some more waiting to see if they needed to re-draw more names.
3.30pm told to go home. today - about an hour of uni work and many hours wasted time. I have WEEKS of work to do at school. And I am sitting there thinking about it. Watching crap day time tv.
Tomorrow - straight in with uni work I reckon. I have apparently 4 more days of this to go - I am hoping I really do get on a trial because then I will actually have achieved something.
The backyard. we need rain urgently!
