So, I drive an hour in traffic and rain to get to the courthouse, only to be told that my jury duty had been canceled. Couldn't they have, you know, mailed me? Or emailed me since I confirmed online? Not only that, I don't get a credit for service for this, so they can call me again whenever they want.

Sucks.  I just got a mailing for jury duty, but was able to defer out 6 months due to an appointment conflict.

They always tell me to call after 6pm the night before to find out if I still have to come in.  You're supposed to check with them before going, not the other way around. frown

Pretty sure Massachusetts doesn't tell you to do that. The best part was that there was some note on the record that said that mail had been returned or something - they how did they get me the first notice? Nothing is wrong with my mail. On the bright side, 1) I was able to sneak in 2 rank upgrades in COD5 and 2) I am assured to be home to accept the delivery of my ps3.

I met my ex-girlfriend while reporting for jury duty. That's all I remember about that day. So many memories...

I just walked back from court, where I was excused for cause from a panel of prospective jurors.

Apparently they don't like it when you explain why you think cops and gang members both lie.

I would have thought your tactic would have been more that, as a federal employee, you think anyone who isn't is out to contaminate the essence of your natural fluids.

This is old info, so it may not pertain anymore, but in Massachusetts, they used to give you a number to call the night before to see if you were still needed - AND the call-in qualified as your jury duty (though they may have changed that, dunno.)  Be sure to save the info/ letter/ whatever, and state it on your next summons.  I'm thinking you should probably not use the intarwebs for this... ?

But the real point is - OMG, Teggy, you are from Massachusetts?  I  don't think I knew that, lol - I'm from Western MA, Amherst to be precise.  GO New England!   icon_razz
