Have fun! Jamie did jury duty for two weeks once. His number was never called up so he never had to go in.

I've done jury duty once and I was SOO bored and I had to sit there all day and they never called me. They just sent me a jury duty notice and I exempted myself b/c I don't have anyone that could watch my children. I was just so heart broken about it.

Here you don't go in and wait. Here you call a number the night before and see if your number is being called in. If so, you go in and see if they want you for a jury. Most people never go in.

We have a one day/one trial system here. I have had Duty like 8 times.. this was my 4th time having to go in, the other 4 I called and didn't have to go. Once I was out by 10am,once by noon and once not until 5pm!! Never was called upstairs though.Today there was a criminal trial and we all did go upstairs. I cited personal hardship because of being the sole caretaker to 4 kids We don't have that as a reason on the actual paperwork..but if you get into court it's ok to use it..weird. Seems they'd save time and headache if they just had it on the forms.

I've never been called to jury duty. I've always lived in high population areas though.

I would suppose not lol Jamie got a call to serve in the mail two days after we moved. Since we had changed not just counties but states they quickly exempted him from serving.

I have never been called, but Steve has been on Jury duty once (a big bore) and after that got 3 more calls. He just said he's a small buisness owner and can't leave things and that got him out.

Matthew would love to go and do it. The whole thing just freaks me out.
