Carol sighs as she walks into the courthouse early one morning after dropping the kids off at school. She had been summoned for jury duty and isn’t exactly thrilled about it. She has a ton of work to be done–lessons to be planned, end of year tests to prepare for (because she knows the end of the school year will be here far too quickly), artwork assignments that still need to be graded. This isn’t a good time for her to have jury duty.

Narrated by Shelley
