Really Jury Duty?

In the spring I spent some time helping my country try to teach people not to sue for stupid reasons. I thought it was enough to spend three (million) weeks of your life on jury duty, especially while pregnant. Even though I didn’t have a job that I was missing, getting paid $10 a day was almost insulting. Maybe I would have felt better doing it for free so I could have felt like I was REALLY doing my civic duty. In the end I made a whopping $120 for my time, not to mention the free bus pass to and fro. Today when I did my taxes it turns out the government wants $14 back from me for said experience. I’m pretty sure that’s just a cruel joke.

In better news Harmon earned us $1300 just for being born last year, furthering his status in our minds as the best child ever. But still, I want my $14.
