I have been serving on a jury for the last week; it has actually been sort of an interesting experience. The attorneys are long-winded and irritating to listen to, but overall, it's been relatively painless.
Today I am thankful for good-spirited Judges. The Judge assigned to the case is hilarious and clearly as annoyed by the attorneys as the jury is. He is constantly cracking jokes at their expense and pointing out their inexperience. It's pretty amusing watching them squirm!
