And my first birthday gift of the day is. . .

A summons to Olmsted County Court jury duty! A two week stretch beginning on April 10!

Oh how fun!

I got a letter from the Federal court telling me I might be on for a year starting in September. Fun. I hope they send out the notices via RSS or email.

I've been tapped for jury duty twice, and had to dodge it both times. Which is too bad, because I'd actually really like to do it.

Though it has always seemed to me like one of those really fucked up examples of the government being unwilling to take the steps required to make our system of government work. Specifically, it seems to me that employers should be required to give you a special paid leave for jury duty. I mean, that just seems like a no-brainer to me.

But no. You get $10 a day and a voucher for parking. Bullshit.

I did jury duty back in Dec., it was big fun, the bailiff had to come in several times and tell us to be quiet because they could hear us laughing and joking in the courtroom from the jury room. Not bad at all.......

Happy Birthday! And what is with the two-week stretch thing? We get a notice in the mail that gives us the day & time to show up & that's it. If we're not selected for our case that day we go home & its over.

Laughing and joking in the jury room? What, did you send someone to the chair while singing "We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue, and then we'll take it higher"?

That would make ME laugh.

No, we were not deliberating yet, and were not allowed to discuss anything to do with the case. This was while the lawyers were arguing over what evidence should be allowed in, who was going to be allowed to testify, all the boring shit that lawyers do, not when it came to the real stuff. Then we were serious, came to the only decision that we could given the evidence, and told the bailiff that we had come to a decision.
It was all fun and games again after that. And it's better than working anyday........

Too bad you can't use a substitute. So happens I have nothing scheduled those two weeks. :)
