Good luck Jess

October 22 for me. Jury duty. Before I was excused because I was not a citizen yet. Hubby was summoned earlier in spring. Here, you called a phone number after working hour the day before and check if you need to show up. He needed not show up last time. Hope I am as lucky but I am not feeling lucky lately Anyway, it's the city court so nothing serious, right?

Hubby's college's wife never responded to all her jury duty summons and so far, no police showed up in her door step

I don't usually post here, but I wanted to share that I bought my ticket to see Nole in Rio in November! I'm so happy!

I remember in Houston that when people didn't show up for jury duty mostly nothing happened, but if it was a busy day for juries, and they were looking to run short, they sent out deputies to pick up people.

I like the phone call ideal When cases are settled as they often are just before trial, there's no reason to make a citizen trek down to the courthouse.

Yes. It's city court for me in downtown Scottsdale which is at the opposite diagonal end from my home. So if I show up and they don't need me, I would have wasted 2 hours driving.

I've been on three juries. I think there is something about my profile that is ambiguous and makes both sides want me. In Houston, I got picked every time I was called except one time, and that was a civil trial. The other times were criminal trials. Nothing was serious. No really long trials. One was 2 days.

I think it's good for everyone to be involved in the justice system. It's serious, but it's not intimidating.

Also the chances of your being picked aren't great.
The chances of my being picked actually seemed pretty good I went at 8:30 as directed, had my little orientation since I wasn't there yesterday. They only called in about 50 people that weren't there already yesterday. 2 of the judges with trials already had their juries, so they just went in, and the third was still selecting theirs, but they never took anyone else in. THEN luckily the rest of the cases for the day were settled So they sent us home at noon instead of sending us to lunch

But I probably still have to go back tomorrow and Thursday until I'm used for one of these shindigs. All I did today was watch Let's Make a Deal and The Price is Right which is probs what I would have done at home anyway

Re: Look, you know, our draws are not rigged they are just unlikely. (pt2)

We have to call the night before to see if we're needed also Or you can check online. The first day they only called jurors up until #360 or so, and I'm #412. For today they called to #420 (SO CLOSE!) I'm pretty sure I'll be called back again tomorrow unless there aren't any new cases.

The main bummer, is that there were no average looking to hot looking men in the assembly room *sigh* Come on NJ, if you're going to call me for jury duty, can you pick a man under 30 also? IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK? There were all OLLLLLLD men and mostly older women too, but maybe 4-5 other women around my age. *sigh* I could have used that 3 hours to get my flirt on

We can check online too and it's only for one day. The juror's number is a 9 digit numbers and I took a look on the online site the other day, it was like if your number ended with certain numbers, you have to show up, otherwise, no.

No eye candy for Jess

btw, I didn't see anymore FB flirting by Jess. What's up?

I didn't go to our reunion so I guess his interest is over

Plus I saw on FB that he's quitting smoking which means that he was previously a smoker, and that is gross so I wouldn't have wanted to date him anyway
