Well, it does kind of make me feel invisible, but I won't take it personally.
I guess mostly, I'd like to learn more about how courts really work. I've never been inside of a court. The only thing I know about court is what I've seen on TV, and I know thats never a true picture of reality.
I don't want to get arrested or divorced, and I've never had to testify about anything.
Is that normal? I'm just curious, what is the average number of times that average Americans have been in court, for any reason, over a lifetime?
It seems like most people by my age have been in court for something, at least a divorce or adoption or to testify for somebody else, or for jury duty, or they sued somebody (or got sued) or something, some of them many times for lots of different reasons, even if they're not criminals.
Maybe I just have a boring life, but I feel ignorant, like I'm a citizen of this country and its a part of being an American (the court system) that I don't know anything about.
