Jury Duty

I hardly get any important mail these days, throwing out probably 99% of it… but today a letter caught my attention: “SUMMONS/ORDER TO APPEAR” … I’ve been ordered to be available for jury duty, AHHHHHHHH! I really don’t want to sit in a god damn room with a hundred other people for two days bored out of my mind, and then potentially be selected for a trial after that. Ugh!

    This is where the almight palm pilot will come in handy.  People will envy you because you will be the only in the room play games not just on your cell phone.  There is always the chance to take a CE device or a laptop and sniff for 802.11b for some Internet access.  But I guess a court room may not be the best for this type of practice.  :)

    Heh, but I’d rather not go. :)

    I could flat out lie or put on a show… wear a Cops t-shirt, start tickling other jurors, run into walls, say I know the defendant, say I’m a memmber of the press, etc…

    Or I could bank on being dismissed beacuse of what I am, a techie/geek/logical thinking person.  Maybe I could appear a little stubborn so they don’t think I can be persuaded easily :-D

    When I got called in for that, I just said I was a student and couldn’t miss classes. They let you off EVERY time for that. I saw half a dozen people in front of me do it while I was waiting.
