Jury "UGH" Duty
Greetings. Cookie has been hereby notified that he is to report to Baltimore City (County) Jury Duty in downtown Baltimore.
When you live in the city of Baltimore, which is both a city, and its own county, you get called to jury duty just about every other year. And they do it so fucked up here.
In Ohio, you get called for a two week period, Monday through Friday. You report each day at 8am. If you aren't called, you go to lunch at noon, return at one, and if you still aren't called, they send you home by 3PM. On your second week, if you aren't called by Thursday, you have done your civic duty, you get a get out of Jury Duty for three year certificate and your life
You serve for one day in the pool. If you are not chosen for a jury, you can get called again next year. In other words they can call you every freaking year and disrupt your life.
Looks like I dodged a bullet. My number was not called. So I can still receive ANOTHER summons this year. UGH.
Maybe it will be after Labor Day and I can freak the defendant out by wearing white shoes after the holiday. "Fashion has changed." You know...
