The fact that I spent that much time was crazy... but I had to do what I had to do. As I sat there for 7 hours, I felt like I was in an episode of law and order. I heard about a gazillion cases yesterday.
- There were about 30 cases of people who let their grass grow too high. So these people who got fined had to come to court for their ticket. Fine was $75 and court fees of $33. So this is a warning for you that make sure you cut your grass because if not, the police will come after you.
- Then there was a case of a girl who apparently beat the shit out of her boyfriend. Looking at her, you would have never known she had so much rage.
- Then there were 3 people who came in from jail.. handcuffs and all. I thought they were all guys until the judge called the name... and holy shit she was a female. Would have never known thanks to her shaven head and "manly" outfit. She went crazy in a CVS pharmacy by stealing and assaulting one of the employees. Part of her deal was that she was being checked into rehab after jail.
- THEN THE KICKER - guy was caught masturbating in his car in a public parking lot. HEARD IT ALL!
So that was my day in court. Hope your Monday was much better than mine.
And onto Tuesday we go...
