Not this time!

Woo-hoo! Managed not to get picked for a jury today!

When I got there I saw a bench full of my former fellow jurors, we chatted and caught up - strange how you can become friendly over something like jury duty. Of course none of us wanted to get called again, since we'd already served, but the judge said that they would be reviewing 6 or 7 cases and might need juries for all of them! Luckily two entered pleas, one was a no show (which lend to a bench warrant) and one was dismissed - so only two cases needed juries. Strangely enough, those juries were only 6 people, instead of 12 - not really sure why.

Anyway, two of the folks from my previous jury were seated in the new juries (even though they tried to get out of it by talking about how the jury was hung) - but the rest of us got off for the rest of the week! I hate to revel in other's misery, but I am sooooo glad not to have to do that again.

The bad news is that I still have one more week I have to call in, but I'm really hoping that my number won't come up again.
