I am always amazed at what I see in the courthouse. The shit people show up in is amazing. Have you ever seen www.peopleofwalmart.com? This could be its own site. Www.peopleofgdc.com. If only I could take pictures. I saw a big lady in all black skin tight clothes and stiletto pumps, people in dirty work clothes, kids in suits with their lawyers (usually the suits are brand new or don't fit), house coats, slippers, flip flops, sweats... you name it. Curlers in the hair, hair half braided. Its a circus. I looked (per the girls at work) like a walking Gap ad. No wonder people kept staring!
I have learned... get there early, don't bring anything, keep head down, avoid eye contact and I ALWAYS sit right behind the cops. Nobody wants to sit there, so there are always extra seats! So I walk up when my chick gets called. She promptly asks for a continuance and the public defender wants to know what the tech is available to come back. Ummmm.... I looked around, no techs here ma'am. This RN will come back when you need her. Hell, it IS overtime. Now I have 3 pending cases. 2 dui blood draws and a blood draw from a fatality MVC.
If I plan my wardrobe out maybe I will wear some pj's and my penguin slippers....
