Well I was recently on reserve juror duty -still had to go to work and call in or check the website every day after a certain time. Honestly they shpuld pay for that also since you really can't make any plans for anything.
A few years ago I was actually picked to go sit at the courthouse in the jury pool, it was a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Talk about boring - So on Friday about 1:00PM my number gets called - I'm saying to myself, this is not happening. Well luckily I got tossed out on that one because I said the guy had to be guilty or he wouldn't have made it this far in the system.
