It’s been a long day.  I worked until 0315 hours this morning, compiling Nevada election results.

Then I had to be up by 0730 hours to make it to court.  This because I witnessing a drunk driver on my way home.

What was supposed to be a simple hearing, turned into a full-on deposition.  By the time everything was done, I felt like I should have had an attorney representing me.

I didn’t dot my i’s properly or cross me t’s as I should have and she took full advantage of this.

And while it was rough on me, it was worse for the deputies and officers involved in the case.  I found myself getting angry at some of the questions being asked.

Finally, I was insulted when the court-master handed me some forms to fill out, telling me I would get paid $25 for being a witness. And here I was naive enough to think doing my civil duty was payment enough.

I have to do this again in December too and now I’m not looking forward to it.
