Unhappy Jury Duty....

Well, I was lucky enough to get chosen for a trial! All I know so far is that it should last from 4-5 days. I am not a happy camper.


And on the way home... trying to find my way out of down town Seattle... I got my first ever ticket. I turned in to a 'busses only" lane. Three people in front of me and one behind all got tickets too. The very nice policeman said that it was well marked... yeah, that's why four of us were stopped at the same time. I wonder how many people got tickets there today??? 100 dollars down the drain. The policeman also told me to go to court to fight it...lolololol if I hadn't been in COURT all day I wouldn't have gotten the ticket in the first place!

(this is me in a bad bad mood)!!!

Driving in Seattle is a big hassle. It's hard not to get confused if you don't know where you're supposed to be and what lane to be in. By the time you see the sign, it's too late and no one will let you get in the other lane. Traffic is getting worse and worse through Seattle. Sorry pds.

Sorry you got a ticket, especially after doing your civic duty. I got one a few years ago that I knew there was no way I could have been going as fast as he said. I had just made a left turn from a light that had just turned green and not even gained any speed, but I considered that perhaps another time I should have gotten one and hadn't - the only way I could appease my worry. Hope the rest of your week is wonderful, and you are able to enjoy the jury duty (at least as much as you can).

$10???? I am sure they pay far more than that here although since I have a govt. job I don't get extra pay for jury duty and i have always managed to avoid it by being a mother of young children or cause I'm a teacher.
Do they feed you as well? At least its a short trial imagine being on the Michael jackson one or something like that.
