Me + Court Room Today = Jury Duty


I HAVE JURY DUTY TODAY!

 My amazing Grandmother always said being called for jury duty was a great, and it's part of our duties as a citizen of the United States. I can actually say, I'm a little nervous. In 25 years, this is my second time being called. Yikes! The first time was about 3 years ago and it was Federal Court. It was so intimidating. My number was not drawn, or I'm sure I would've been picked. Thank goodness I wasn't, but I didn't have a clue what was going on or what in the world they were talking about! So, wish my luck! Share your stories with me. Who knows, If I don't respond after a while... I just may have been picked!

i've never been called for jury duty (i, too, am 25). i don't know why either... i fill out the questionnaire and then feel a little bit like the last kid picked in gym class when they don't invite me in. isn't it silly??
i also share the same sentiment as your gram; that it's an honor!

I've been called for jury duty once. My experience wasn't so bad .. only thing is they had bookoo people that they called in to go .. thankfully, my number wasn't called so I got away easy!

Good luck today!

I've never been on jury duty (I'm 27, and British) - always thought it sounded fun. And that cartoon is excellent :D

OMG! I would LOVE to be called on for jury duty. But that's probably because of my interest in law! I have never been called and am always immensely jealous of those who are!

Hope you don't have to go. A while ago I had to go in. I was there for an hour or so and then the judge said we could leave. The guy on trial didn't show up. I am glad because it was an elder abuse case.

How did it go? Did you send anyone to jail today?
