September 14 Day 920: Uncertainty Rules

It’s impossible to plan when serving on jury duty. I am grateful that I was not made to sit around the juror room on Monday or Tuesday with nothing to do. I put that time to good use.

Today, however, I was called in. I have a badge and am waiting to be sent to a court room. The problem —- I need to talk with a couple people today. I tentatively have one meeting scheduled for lunchtime because they have to let us out to eat, right? I can make phone calls in the juror room and am hoping to connect with the other person during a lull in the activity. Fingers crossed.

Thankfully, I was able to order my annual parking pass when the portal opened at 9 am this morning. Parking is so tight on campus, a permit is a necessity.

And for those that are curious as to the COVID protocols. The summons says masks are required. Apparently, following the current Pierce County guidelines, masks are optional. So not many people in the room are masking. I am purposely sitting near one of the portable room filters.
