One angry woman

The holidays were rough, but we got through them. I have a story to tell about that, but that will have to wait for another day. Today I'm irritated and need to share.

I spent Maggie's life fighting the system. If you fought enough you could make it work. It did work for her mainly because of the constant fighting. Somehow I thought one small relief I would get was the end of the fight.

Not to be.

You may recall my irritation a month or so ago when Maggie received another summons for jury duty. If not, you can read it here: Maggie World: The Jury is out.  Despite my aggravation I dutifully reported to the court that Mary Margaret would not be reporting because she passed way. My rationale for bothering to do this was that the notices would stop. I was so very wrong.

Today Maggie received a "NOTICE OF FAILURE TO APPEAR FOR JURY SERVICE."  This letter threatens the "imposition of fines and/or incarceration."

Good luck with that. I think she's out of your jurisdiction now.

I just finished writing a letter to our jury commissioner that ends like this

What do I have to do to make this stop?  Your office was advised of her inability to serve because of her permanent disabilities. That was ignored. It was likewise advised that Mary Margret passed away.  That too was ignored. Please pay attention, and adjust your records to remove her name. This is just cruel.  

 Any bets on when she gets the next notice.

Or when I do?

  1. Oh, Sally. You just couldn't make that shit up.

  2. Good for you. Jerks. Stupid system.

  3. I am so sorry that the red tape is so tightly knotted that this is happening. Things need to change - this is not right...

  5. I can just picture Maggie cracking up at the thought of the cops appearing at your doorstep to put her in the slammer!! Too bad it's not Halloween, she could dress up as a jail bird and Steve could convert her chair into a jail cell!! This is so asinine!!

  6. I can just picture Maggie cracking up at this story and her being hauled away to the slammer!! If it was Halloween, you could dress her up as a jail bird and Steve could rig her wheel chair up as a jail cell!! So asinine!!

  7. I bet Maggie is fist pumping when you were writing that letter. I can picture her in my head now doing it. Im sorry you had to deal with it. Maybe they will leave you alone now.

  8. My Dad would be sooooo angry right now. Let the presiding judge know of this incredible insensitive action
    and see if you can get some relief from this process...Love, Peggy Dodds


Hi Maggie loves your comments. It may take a while for the comment to post, but you will see it eventually.
