Two half days of jury duty, which involved nothing more than sitting around, have reaped me the above massive amount of cash. Fifteen bucks for the service, $5.10 in mileage.
I’ve always wanted to be one of those guys getting rich on a fat government paycheck.
Let’s bear in mind that there were 50 in the jury pool, so it cost the county a grand just in jury costs before the trial even started. All to try some poor schmuck for public intoxication. There might be something wrong with this system.
