The Plaintive Plaintiff: Part Two

Court sucks. It's the worst place in the world. It's filled with cops and lawyers and criminals - three of my least favourite kinds of people. Throw in a couple of Bible-bashers and I think I would have grabbed a gun from one of the sheriffs and done myself in.

So, there's bad news and worse news. The bad news is that after waiting there for three hours, today's trial was adjourned - for the second time! The worse news is, now I have to go back there in six months to sit and wait and surround myself with cops and lawyers and criminals.

Always on the lookout for a silver lining: a) at least the process will be less scary next time, since today was the first time I've ever been inside a court house, b) there were a surprising number of hot guys there, even among the cops and lawyers and criminals, and c) I didn't get murdered or maimed.

I can't believe this was your first time in court! I've been on three juries, once as the foreman, and wasn't selected for two other trials!!!

Another six months? Yikes.

Nearly 38 and an utter virgin where the judicial system is concerned. I had been hoping to keep it that way, but alas...

I'm afraid jury duty would kill me.

How do you vote, file income tax and not get called for jury duty? Another difference in Canadian law?

Just lucky, I guess.

I think there are fewer jury trials in Canada.

I would never have to serve anyway. I favour flogging in cases of littering and the death penalty for spitting.

Cop and criminals? Some of them had to be hot! And just the thought of sticking it to a lawyer makes me smile. I need to find a way to go to court, it might help my own lack of dating options. It could happen.
