Things I Learned After Four Fruitless Hours Spent In a Jury Waiting Room
The majority of people are very unattractive
The majority of people available for jury duty seem to be rather old; was there some kind of “you are young and promising: opt out” box I missed?
Living in a city, in a relatively trendy area populated mostly with people between the ages of 20 and 40, it is easy to mistrust the media regarding the nation’s “obesity epidemic.” In a county courthouse, you find out who owns those faceless bellies from stock footage.
I am really hot within the confines of a jury waiting room. Some men do not mind telling me this with their blatant stares.
Watching game shows with a roomful of people is nearly unbearable.
Crazy old men who fart loudly in a roomful of strangers and then laugh about it could loosely be considered my “peers.”
I still don’t know how to find the fastest way from the suburbs to the northwest side of Chicago.
