Civic duty & a taxing day

What a wonderful day - I had the honor of paying my taxes and I had the joy of jury duty. They have designed the whole process with no thought of any comfort.

The room is in the early goulag-style with touches of mid-Soviet. The cold-hard-ugly soul-sucking room is perfect for the banshee and her shrill speech. Same tired jokes year after year.

Best phrase to say in the presence of a judge, "He must be guilty, why else would the police have arrested him?"

The gave me 12 months off for good behavior. Till next year.

I can't think of anything I despise, loathe, and abominate, more than jury duty.
