The wedding is this Saturday and with everything that I have to do this week, there was no way I could report for jury duty tomorrow and maintain what little sanity I have left. (Although, that may have worked in my favor, now that I think about it.) Kudos to Harris County’s Department of Justice for making it oh-so easy for me to reschedule my summons online. Even though I barely believe that the legal system of Texas thinks I have any rights, at least I don’t have to look judgment in the eye until January now.
Before I get hate mail; no, I have no problem being asked to serve jury duty, and yes, I believe in making change by working with and within the system. And yes, it gives me a private thrill to be able to say I can’t make it because of a “Family business” conflict. The TJB crew…Lindsey & Rhonda’s wedding…keeping myself sane so I can properly clean L____’s house…they’re all my family, and it’s my business to help them right now.
