Jury Duty & Reunions

So far the first year has been without Drama. Been kind of laid back and casual. Watched The Rose Bowl on Monday. Tuesday had a business appointment and the did some banking, grocery shopping, and reading. Yesterday is Mom's banking, some Scrabble, and a night there. Today it is more grocery shopping, this time for Mom., and other errands for Mom. The more Scrabble and home by nine tonight. I wish I could say there were casual and laid back stories for today but nope.

Another reason to get out of jury duty:

I wonder what cave her boss has been living in. How many times have you heard that it is illegal to fire someone for doing jury duty? I've lost count.

Next up is reunion story number one:;_ylt=Aopo9MUe.KS9vniJKvvOaZWs0NUE;_ylu=X3oDMTNscWo5MDY3BG1pdANUb3BTdG9yeSBGUARwa2cDNTc3N2E1ZjUtZTA2NC0zNmUzLWI2NzktY2EyNzcxMDRiOWEzBHBvcwM5BHNlYwN0b3Bfc3RvcnkEdmVyAzk2OTYzMDMwLTM3YmMtMTFlMS05ZmVlLTU5MmYzYThmNWYxZA--;_ylg=X3oDMTFvdnRqYzJoBGludGwDdXMEbGFuZwNlbi11cwRwc3RhaWQDBHBzdGNhdANob21lBHB0A3NlY3Rpb25zBHRlc3QD;_ylv=3

What are the odds that the teen would use an alias that was in the system?

Closing out the day with reunion story number 2.

Someone had to pick up the cat and took it to Colorado. That is my guess.

Comment Away.

That "supervisor" (I note that both parties were labeled "supervisor") sure put her foot in it when she didn't make up some excuse when actually doing the firing. And get it on record. I'm glad she's getting nailed, but I know such things go on all the time, and to prove you were fired for an improper reason is difficult if not impossible. That Trejo-Beverly acted while she was still serving jury duty will probably win her case for her.

The false name deportation story is just totally weird. I guess the lesson is don't run away from home. Or if you do, make sure you have ID and don't give false names.

Meow! Glad to be home. Maybe. It was warmer in Florida.

Hi Pat

The firing was so close to jury duty that even if it was a legitimated firing due to to many previous firings is very suspect. My guess is like the article said is that the firing supervisor just may end up in court herself.

That was the lesson that I got too, don't run away from home. The other lesson is that if you have a missing child check with immigration.

If I was the getting I wouldn't like either Florida or Colorado!

A year without drama, but also a busy one the last few days. You've done have your Sunday check-in (g).

Unless the firing supervisor has a lot of documentation of poor performance and complaints, I'd say she's in deep do-doo. Given the employee was on probation, lack of such documentation may well land her supervisor in court and with good reason. Having been a supervisor, having had to fire employees and having been a mgt analyst with the state EEO division, documentation is going to likely be the crux of the matter.

Glad the kitty is safely back home and kudos to the owner for the microchip. I thought about putting one in Scamp, when she was spayed, but didn't. I may rethink that, before we head west...

I can do busy, drama no. And no on the Sunday check-in but there is hope that one will be done in a couple of days.

Even if the jury firing was legitimate it was handled poorly. Surely they could have kept her busy for a couple of weeks, gave her appropriate warnings, and then fired her. Firing so close to jury duty is just plain stupid.

I think it is a great idea of have a microchip. Katie had one. One more way to make sure they get safely home to you if something happens.
