I swore I mentioned that I had been called for jury duty in an earlier post, but couldn’t find it. Oh well. I was. And this week was my week to show up. So, since last Friday, I have been calling every evening after 5:00 PM to see if I need to show up in the morning. Here’s the responses so far:
- Friday (for Monday) : No jurors needed.
- Monday (for Tue) : Jurors #001 through 052 need to show up at 8:15 in the morning.
- Tue: Jurors #053 through 168.
I figured that since the number called was increasing every day that they would certainly go beyond my #287. I got everything in my classroom ready, informed the main secretary that I was pretty sure I would be out tomorrow and locked away all the valuables that kids tend to get into when I have a substitute (pencils, pens, markers, diet coke, paper, tennis balls, golf balls, other various toys. Y’know, real valuables).
- Wed: Jurors #169 through 192.
Not a lot of crime in Salt Lake City right now I guess. Now, I’m not even sure I’ll be called on Friday. Heh, we’ll see.
