Re: Go figure...

Vacation starts the 15th of July, ends the 27th, and guess what I get in the mail, jury duty for the 23rd , with my luck it'll be a long multi-day trial. Don't they pay you like $5?

Re: Go figure...

Send the form back, and check the box that says that you can't serve because you will be on vacation (or something to that effect). I've been there, and it wasn't any problem to postpone jury service.

Re: Go figure...

can't you just commit a crime and then not be eligible to be on a jury

OMG! That has to be the most racist shirt I've ever seen, I'd probably get arrested if I wore that!

Re: Go figure...

Well, I got it postponed, I was going to try to get out all together, but I figured it can't be as boring as work so what the hell.

Re: Go figure...

Last Jury Duty True Story!

Prosecutor: 'Have you ever received a traffic ticket you thought you didn't deserve?'

Me: (Thinking, Hmm maybe there is a God) 'Yes, All of them.'

Prosecutor: 'Dismiss for cause your honor.'

I go slow... I go slow...
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Re: Go figure...

Hey, Just check the active duty block and send it back and they leave you alone. Has worked for me for 16 years.

Re: Go figure...

I'm in group number 272

<JURORS IN GROUP NUMBERS: 000, 270, 271 AND 272,
should report THURSDAY, JULY 10, 2003, at 9:00 A.M.>

I'll let you know whether or not I get on a good
case . The other time I was assigned jury duty I got selected to 2 trials - one shoplifting and the other some idiot breaking into a soda machine to steal change
