Barely civil service

I just finished jury duty. Luckily the very full docket was whittled down to nothing due to settlements and attorneys waiving their rights to trial by jury in favor of bench trials. The chance of me being picked for a jury are slim to none anyway due to my profession but I still would have had to sit there ALL DAMN DAY. However, at least I live in the parish that I do and not in Orleans parish because that place is just an absolute clusterfuck. For those of you who have no idea, the fact that anything at all gets done in Orleans parish in the sluggish piece of antiquated machinery called the judicial system is a fuckin miracle. The people that work there are not well paid, generally not overly educated and for the most part, could not give two shits about doing their job well or even correctly. Before I am trampled on about how I am dogging these people out, let me also say that their jobs are thankless and they have to deal with attorneys - a fact that should lead to them getting hazard pay. All that being said, I have watched these people in the Orleans parish clerk's office work - and I use that term very LOOSELY. Anyway, I digress. Jury duty. The nailed me for today and my parish only forces me to a one day duty and then I am free for two years. I would be lying if I did not say I was thrilled for the break from work. As I have mentioned, going into work has been more taxing than usual. I won't go into details now because I don't really have time, but I hope that either the environment or my attitude improves soon. Let's hope.
