No, not the wretched Pauly Shore "comedy". On Valentine's Day, all I got was a lousy jury summons. Now I know I'm not the only one who HATES this crap. Being legally required to serve (or at least show up at the courthouse and sit around for hours) is BS. There are people who would love to do it, why not set up a 'preferred list'? lol. Seriously, the LAST kind of person I'd want on a jury if I was a defendant is a person who's plain furious to be there from the start. I had a jury summons about a year ago. Had to call this number for 30 days to see if my number was called. 29 days go by and I'm thinking I'm all set right? Wrong. Day #30 I was called in. Yay for me. So we basically sit around in a room for 2 hours only to be later informed that the defendant changed his plea to guilty and we were no longer needed. (Turned out, the guy killed a woman and burned her body in a large barbecue pit in his back yard.) So this Valentine's I got a new one. First time I didn't mind THAT much since the courthouse was 15 minutes from me. The new one would require me to drive over an hour. ACK! Wish me luck that my number won't be called eh? It didn't say I'd have to check in for a month though. It just gave ONE specific date and that I had to call in the night before. One thing that bugged me was, they sent a questionaire with it. One of those questions asked "What do you do in your spare/private/leisure time?" Huh? I'm sorry but that is NOBODY'S business but my own, certainly NOT the government's so I simply wrote down "private". Anybody else get called in for jury duty? Any stories to share?
