Down the Drain

Today's updates and x-posts: None

Great! Things just keep happening. Today the police served a summons at my brother's house. The summons was for me. I have no idea in the world what they could possibly want with me, but I am extravagantly nervous.

I have tried looking things up in casenet, but Missouri is not big on putting things on the internet. It'll probably be uploaded a year after my case is disposed. My brother says I am due in court Thursday 4 March at 17:00. Delivering the summons at 15:00 on 3 March seems uncommonly short notice.

Appearing in court will be a screaming pain in the ass. I have no means of transportation to the Osage County Courthouse (which is where I presume I am to appear) or to any still more distant courthouse. My sister will have to borrow a car from someone.

I guess you find out who your friends are in a hurry in a situation like this. My resources are extremely limited in this regard these days. Nobody I could call was willing to drive me to my brother's house (45 minutes each way) to pick up the summons or to take me to court. My sister begged the use of a car after making extravagant promises. This will allow her to retrieve the summons. I still don't know how I'll get to court.

Talk about your life going down the drain. Somebody shoot me.
