Jury Duty...Really?

This is what I'll be doing today!


Why does it always feel like an inconvenience when I get these in the mail?

It's not like I get them all the time, but when I have/do, I automatically think of my schedule and how it's going to alter my day!

I had ample time to postpone this, but all I did was neglect all the fine print. So, too late. No can do. I HAVE to report in person due to my "group number."

Then, I started to think of all the possible cases, and also what kinds of questions the lawyers may ask me (if I get that far). I'm a little nervous, and I don't know what to expect! You always hear of the things that you can say that will automatically dismiss you. But, would I "really" want to do that?

Have any of you served on a jury? How was your experience?

I have never been called to serve. I have no idea why, but i am not complaining. It seems some people get called all the time. My mom served on a murder trial in Chicago. A sad and long experience.

Oh wow - why is it some people seem to get called frequently, while others of us never do?
At least now (or at least here where I live) you don't have to actually report in everyday, you just call the night before and they tell you if you have to appear the next day.

I L.O.V.E. Jury Duty! And it's harder to get out of it than you think. It's very educational, seeing how our judicial system works. It's also a great chance to meet new people with varied lives and ideas and great for finding new things to blog about. Go into it with a positive attitude and I think you will find it's not that bad.

I've only been called to jury duty once and I was like 8 months pregnant at the time. I got my ob to right me an excuse because I knew there was no way I could sit for more than an hour without having to get up and go to the restroom!

I've been called to jury duty once as well and called to let them know that I didn't have a babysitter. So they let me off..If I get another one I think I'd go for sure.
