What kind of answer is that?
I call up the Markham Courthouse (general number) and get a busy tone? hummmm. I figure they keep shorten hours, should I expect them to be gone at 4pm on a weekday? is this normal? Pass it off for a typical Monday attitude. Call this afternoon and the phone just rings and rings...I stay on for a complete 30 seconds. hummmm. It's only 11:15 am. So, I go online and look up the number, perhaps I'm wrong. I see a few other numbers listed and one is for Jury Room. Who better to answer my question then the actual place I'll be sitting for hours and hours.
--odd, not a standard greeting? I would have expected something like, "You've reached the Jury Room. How may I help you?
me: Good afternoon, I will be attending jury duty next week and I have a question about bringing knitting along with me to pass the time.
her: Just don't.
me: Are you saying that it's just not allowed?
her: Don't bother, bring something else.
me: Are you saying that knitting in the courthouse is not allowed?
her: I just wouldn't.
me: Just wouldn't bring the knitting because?....
her: sigh...I've seen some people knit.
me: Soooo, your saying you can't tell me because security decides who can bring what?
Does it always have to be like pulling teeth? Was that so hard? My goodness, my visual image of this woman is some lazy, nail filing, take long lunches, leaves for home early, chats to much, gum chewing slob.
I'm bringing my knitting and if they don't like it then I'll have a back up book or something.
KNITTING NEWS: finished the back of the hoodie and casted-on for the two fronts. I'm knitting them at the same time, so they'll be perfect;)
