Jury Duty Day #3 - Getting Tired of Waiting

I arrived at the court room at about 10 AM as instructed by the court officer.  One side of the central jury room is for people who are coming for the first time, while the other side is for people like myself who have been assigned to a case and waiting for it to begin.  I sat with the people assigned to my case as we waited and waited.  I read the following appropriate book:

Felix, Antonia. Sonia Sotomayor: The True American Dream. New York: Berkley Books, 2010. Print.

One should do something constructive while waiting to do his civic duty.  Finally at 12:45 PM a court officer came in to tell us to come back tomorrow.  Sitting around like this really sucks.  When I return to NJIT I will have to catch up on my work.  I really feel sorry for people who lose pay from their regular job when called for jury duty and then just sit waiting.
