It was my first time being summonsed to jury duty in San Francisco and surprisingly it was a bit more exciting than I had anticipated. I brought 2 books, knitting and some snacks in preparation for a long boring day waiting for my name to be called but I never had the chance to utilize any of them. Instead, my name was called almost first (although “fish” is not my last name except in Swedish). I was sent to the court room where a trial that has been all over the news in San Francisco is to be held. Unfortunately, I had to postpone due to financial hardship. Who can take 3 weeks off of work unpaid?? I’m sure I wouldn’t have been picked but the prospect of being a part of such a trial was actually exciting. I’d like to see the process first hand and see both sides of the story. I think it may have been the propaganda video they show everyone early in the morning that got me. I’m definitely going to watch 12 Angry Men again!
