There were over 600 people there and, honestly, I imagine that maybe 20% of them were functional enough to serve on a jury.

It started in the parking garage with two women (one obese slag in red tights and the other a passive/aggressive school marm) getting into a shoving, screaming, swearing, match over a parking spot and then calling the police on each other and lying about what the other had done. It went downhill from there.

Leslie, didn't your Mum ever tell you that to wear a coctail dress during daylight hours is unsophisticated? Especially with trainers.. come on, I know it's Texas, but even so....

It's a really good ploy to make sure you aren't selected though

That's true but part of me wonders if they didn't think that was how they were supposed to dress to go to court.
