We Never Had A Chance To Say Goodbye

After my stint at the courthouse on Monday, I was instructed to call a number at the courthouse at 5PM the next day for further instructions. This is all so secret agent. Anyway, Tuesday, I called and was told that my "services would not be needed" and to call back Wednesday.

Today at 5, I called the number. The recording told me that my "jury service is over."

It hurt.

I couldn't bring myself to accept it. I actually called again to make sure I had heard the message right. I couldn't believe it was over. Just like that. Had I changed? With Summer coming up, I really wanted a distraction. I let my guard down and "poof!" It was all gone.

I guess they found somebody else.

Oh well. The jury folks don't have to worry about me. I'll be fine. I just need some time.

If it were me, I'd call the number repeatedly and hang up when the call is answered. Then I'd start hanging out at the courthouse to see who got picked and try to figure out what they have that I don't. And I'd hook up with a rebound court, just to make myself feel loved.
