    Would you believe I had two very different experiences with jury selection just weeks apart?

    Wasn’t it interesting way to get to see the contrast of the structure and rigidity of federal court against the chaos and disorganization of the state court?

    My mother got summoned twice...once on her wedding day, once the day she was due to give birth...can you imagine how "pleased" she was on both occasions?

    Did major life events like that not automatically exempt her?!

    She was exempted the moment she arrived, but is it possible the current summons verbiage identifying exemptions was added as a result of her informing the murder-trial-judge there was about to be another murder in the courtroom if she wasn't excused?

    Isn’t arriving in the middle of all that stressful enough on its own?

    Did you both celebrate by taking a hike?

    Didn't I do that the two days prior?

    Couldn't you say I was unknowingly celebrating?

    Would you consider running and walking on a treadmill because it's raining outside to be "taking a hike" and celebrating? Can I chalk up the 14 oz of Häagen-Dazs vanilla Swiss almond ice cream I devoured last night to celebrating national hiking day? 🤭😋🤭

    On National Hiking Day, is it still an insult to tell somebody to "go take a hike?"

    Wouldn’t it call for context if you didn’t want to come off as rude?

    Since when do social media posts ever use "context"? Aren't they SUPPOSED to come across as rude and abrasive, until the original author condescendingly explains how the reader is "supposed to read" it? Isn't that why most social media platforms the world over are the way they are? (Could this also explain why I use zero social media except for MFP?)

    Don't we have more in common than you would think as this is also my only social media outlet?

    And isn’t it a good thing @cmsienk and @frankwbrown know that if I used “take a hike” in the other way, it would be gentle teasing?

    @cat0703a, you know you can feel free to tell me to "take a hike", right?

    Isn't it the case that the better you know someone, the less likely you are to misunderstand their intent? Don't I recall an email I sent at work being taken as an insult by one person when in fact I was admonishing a second person for doing a task rather than showing the first person how to do it? 🤷‍♂️
