Quiznos during jury duty

There is nothing worse than leaving your house for Jury Duty at 6:45 in the morning and reading the directions on your form that states clearly, “Airport security measures will be used upon entry into the courthouse.”  What would you think that means?  No big containers over 3 oz and no water bottles, right?  WRONG!  Well, I didn’t know this until the friendly guard at the door with a big flirtatious smile across his face told me to go in with my 1/2 water bottle.  I was dumbfounded because man, I would have taken a gallon of water with me and a whole load of stuff to eat if I would have known.  Errrrrrrrr….

Well, the courthouse has vending machines (I saw NOTHING in there except for trail mix which has sugar in it but was among the best of the worst to choose from), soda machines (choose only the $1 PLAIN waters) and two cafeterias (they served carbs, carbs and more carbs.)  So, when we had our first 30 minute break, I went to the cafeteria and ordered a Vanilla hazelnut black coffee with 1 teaspoon of creamer with a tuna salad whole wheat sandwich minus the bread.  I was starving an hour later.  Luckily, I brought my chocolate Yum Nuts with me.  Whew….

Then, along came our lunch break.  I ended up going with a nice woman named Diane to the food court at the Los Angeles Downtown mall 2 blocks away from the courthouse.  I knew we would be faced with crappy options.  So, we went to Quiznos.  Here are some options from Quiznos you can choose from.  Watch Diane’s response in the video below to her JZ lesson for the day.
