I’m currently trying to get out of jury duty. I actually wouldn’t mind serving on a jury, I just would prefer not to have to miss a day of work to do so. My company will pay me for jury duty, but it takes awhile, and I can’t afford for that money not to be on the paycheck to begin with!! I was hoping to get an exemption for being on a two month term a little while back, but unfortunately the two year exemption doesn’t qualify if you don’t get chosen for a jury. Boo. The lady said that if it was going to be an extreme hardship for me to serve, she could probably get me qualified for an exemption, but I don’t think I fit the bill. Maybe I should tell her that appearing would interfere with my need to check into drug rehab? Nah, I’m sure they’d need proof of that. I guess I’ll just have to burn another vacation day so that I can get paid on time and go do my civic duty. I did find out that it is a one day trial so even if I get picked, it won’t take any additional days.
