    I Want to Get Called!!

    Reported For Jury Duty Today

    Disappointed In Myself

    I didn't get chosen, which is a good and bad thing. Public speaking is not my forte. After giving my name, town, and age, I stated that I had an exemption from serving. The judge pulled me aside to discuss the exemption. I am starting my supervision hours this month and need a...
