    Buglover, you are not selfish in the least for your feelings. My sympathies to you for your loss. Such an emotional time is not the best to deal with these things. It will be a difficult day for you - but it does get easier in time. God bless.

    All right, wasn't getting out of jury duty a topic of conversation in here a couple months ago? I just got called for April 17th. I'm looking forward to a day or two of reading, but I don't actually want to have to serve...

    Mr buglover got called last year but was in Mexico when he was supposed to call in. He didn't call, because he wasn't here and last week they actually sent him a notice that he had to call pronto or risk jail time! He has to go in next Monday.....what a world we live in where old people are arrested and decent working people are threatened with jail time if they don't take a day off work........geeze

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I was the person who got called for jury duty and forgot to go! I finally got around to sending them a letter explaining what had happened in my not reporting for duty, and asked to be rescheduled in October or November...figuring/hoping that they would probably forget about me by then. I've already gotten a letter back telling me what date I am to report in October, and that I'll be getting a summons about 30 days prior to my report date. Curses! Foiled Again!!!!

    You have to close your eyes and say, I'm invisible and then they won't call you in!

    That made me actually out loud! A friend of mine had a neighbor who had narcolepsy and while it isn't a funny issue, she made such a huge joke out of it when she would wake up.

    Chug a gallon of water just before showing up. Then repeatedly ask to be excused to the bathroom. If you are having to run to the bathroom every 15 min., they might excuse you. (no idea if this works, just throwing out a probably stupid idea)

    In the prior jury duty discussion, I said that if they actually made me come in (I returned their notice letting them know that I was partially deaf and had a bladder the size of a walnut - they never pressed the issue) I would give into any urge I had to fall asleep while waiting to be called. This isn't actually lying, but it does let them know right off the bat that you have no attention span whatsoever and would likely end up causing a mistrial. I'm pretty sure that jurors have to be alert and able to process information during the course of the trial.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.
