How on earth do I get picked for jury duty so often when so many of you have never been? I almost always get chosen, but it's always been civil/traffic stuff. We have to show up in a big group, stand up in court and give our names, marital status, and job. I had to be foreman once and didn't enjoy that, but it is sort of fun to serve. I would never want to be on a criminal case like mentioned above, though. That's horrible.
