Jury Duty

I got my first ever jury duty summons yesterday. I'm kind of sad to have to try to get out of it. My employer would be lost with out me for a week (his words not mine) and I can't afford to only get paid $10 a day for a week. It's too bad they didn't request me for the week my office is closed anyways. I think it would be interesting to serve on a jury. I also truly believe that being able to have a trial by jury is one of the most important rights this country offers and if everyone always found ways out of it then we wouldn't have that right.

It's "rights" silly. But yes, spelling aside, I agree. I have been summoned 2 or 3 times already but could never do it due to college or military obligations. They really only pay you $10/day? How could ANYONE afford to be on jury duty?

I really wish you were able to go, bummer.

I got called for jury duty this past Feb and I was really excited about it; but unfortunately I wasn't chosen for a trail.

Hopefully we'll both be called to jury duty again soon!

I've always wanted to be summoned and picked too.
