It transpired that this neighbour had argued with her husband and had taken herself to the pub, drank copious amounts of wine and then decided to call to our house knowing my polite Mum wouldn’t turn her away. Next morning when my Mother found out what happened she phoned to berate her and rescinded her wedding invitation. I was pleased that my mother cut ties with this horrible despicable woman. Shortly after she started teaching, she was summoned for jury duty, and on the questionnaire everyone fills out she put professor as her profession. Somehow (and shame on both of them) neither attorney asked her what she was a professor of, and she was put on the jury. It was a medical malpractice case. They didn’t just put a lawyer on the jury, they put a lawyer with specific knowledge of and experience in that area law on the jury.
