Lisa Was Called To Serve For Jury Duty...
But the public defender liked her thoughtfulness and quiet calm and tried to convince her that she was appropriate to serve on the jury.
"Madam", he explained, "this is not a murder trial! It's a simple civil lawsuit.
"A wife is bringing this case against her husband because he gambled away the $12,000 he had promised to use to remodel the kitchen for her birthday".
"Well, okay", agreed Lisa, "I'll serve. I guess I could be wrong about capital punishment after all".
