Jury Duty

“I hear this new judge is a pushover.” Doug leaned towards the little gray haired old lady sitting next to him. “Not like the one who just retired. She was mean to everyone, I hear. Her nickname isn’t something I can repeat to a lady such as you. I have a plan on just how crazy to act so I won’t get chosen for jury duty. How about you?”

“I don’t have a plan,” she replied. “It’s my first time being called for jury duty, but I don’t think they’ll choose me.”

“Why’s that?”

“I’m the judge who just retired.”

  1. Funny story, Tresha. I told someone one time to be careful what they said as you never know what a person’s background is. That would really be embarrassing. It’s funny to read about, though. 😀 — Suzanne
