Jury duty. Very cranky. Cannot have CHILDREN'S scissors. Allowed to have children's scissors on AIRPLANE for god's sake! Can't sew w/o scis! Grr.

  • Yeah...I had that problem a few years back when I needed a copy of my marriage certificate from the courthouse. Seriously -- my school bag was searched. For that. And they were taken.

  • if it's for yarn? Nail clippers work well.

  • When I went to the municipal building to get a copy of our domestic partnership (for adoption), they were very worried about a battery I had in my backpack. I was in a hurry and did not explore. Now, I am curious.

  • Yikes.
    I have jury duty over our school's mid-winter recess. Oh joy.

  • What a crock! I can't imagine Irish jurists being allowed to do anything other than be overwhelmingly bored.

  • They have scissors there that you can borrow.

  • You can use a thread cutter you can pick up from any sewing store.

    -K.

  • Well, I used the time-honored method of biting the thread, and got it done.

    To answer some of your comments, though:

    -If I couldn't bring blunt kids' scissors, I'm pretty sure I couldn't have had a nail clipper. You can't have them on an airplane.
    -If they have scissors you can borrow at our courthouse, no one told me. I wonder if they did have them?
    -I wondered if there was such a thing as a thread cutter (besides the one built in to my sewing machine). I'll have to get one.

    Anyway, I survived and am not on a jury.
