As close to being a sheep as I ever want to get—so we start at 10AM and go to 1PM without a break. When the judge dismissed us the entire jury bolted for the bathrooms. After the jury came back I told a court officer that we needed to have a bathroom break every once in awhile. The guy stared at us like we just beamed over from Planet Moron; “If you want a pee just raise your hand, the judge will declare a break.”. Sixteen people stared at him. That never occurred to any of us. BAAAA!
So I am on a jury, along with a guy who just got arrested for assault and a guy who tried to get off the jury because he takes care of a monkey and the monkey will miss him if he is away all day. I will spend the next week wondering what how I ended up in the same room with these guys. . .
Spinning the ballot box. Ah, I am going to Criminal court.
We have been asked to take all our possessions with us if we step out of the room. The clerk warned us that there are a lot of “alleged” criminals in the building.
