Court - What's that about?

January 9, 2006

Well I went to court. I got there and saw "the accused", that's what they're called when you're at court you see, not just the defendant, the accused. Anyway, then I sat in the waiting room with my boss and we chatted with this other lady who was also a witness but for another case.

Then the defense lawyer wanted to talk to me and my boss, so we went in this little room and sat around a table and he asked us questions about how the whole paperwork and cashout stuff is done. Then after that we went back to the waiting room so the defense lawyer could talk to the accused.

Let me tell you, those were the comfiest waiting room chairs I have ever sat on. Very cushiony. So then the accused went into the court room and we sat in the waiting room and apparently they pled guilty, well I guess she pled guilty because there was only one person charged but her husband was there so it's plural. Anyway, my boss had to go into the courtroom to give them the address of our office so that the accused could pay restitution. Then the accused, I guess the guilty by this point, came over to chat with me to see how school was going and stuff. And she was crying and I felt bad. Then the court people told me I could go home so I did.

And that's what court is about.

The End

Barbara- It's true, I was kind of disappointed, but I was very articulate with the defense lawyer, and I still feel like an expert witness, so therefore it is true.

Gina- Of course they talked to me, I didn't do anything wrong, I actually really like them, very nice people, he gave me chocolates for christmas last year.

Court would be so much better if they gave out cocktail weenies.

You can get mighty peckish sitting there for hours.
