alright i'm gonna vent and whine a bit about this goddamn jury summons i got today and it you're patient i'll tell you a possible way to get outta of jury duty.
okay so way back in 2012 at 8AM my number was called and i was selected with a buttload of other people to go to the top floor of the courthouse. the case i was selected for was against an asshole who finger raped an unconscious woman. this asshole was there too. now this here this part freaked me out- the people to my left, right, front and back were all selected to be jurors. as this is happening i'm quietly freaking the fuck out. the selections are made and i ain't one of em. then some of the jurors get a chance to plead their case to get outta being a juror and some of the lucky cusses get accused and right when i think i'm homefree more jurors are selected. this happens and i ain't selected. this takes about an hour and then the fucking annoying questions begin. each juror is asked what they're favorite tv show, movie, book, and hobby are. this takes about 2 hours or so. then it's lunchtime for an hour and i don't eat i just get double espresso. we go back to the courtroom and the lawyers then get their chances to ask the most annoying questions of hypotheticals and what ifs and no matter what you answer they'll pick it the fuck apart. this lasts about a good 2 and a half hours. later we're all excused.
so long story short(too late) my time as a near juror included freaking out, being bored to death and annoyed by stupid question and sitting on a sadistically hard wooden bench for near 5 hours straight. all this is why i'm fucking bummed i got another jury summons today and might have to go thru all this again and might get fucking picked this time.
here's the possible tip- when you're asked what your favorite movie is say it's something fucked up like a Hostel or Saw and say your fave TV show is Law and Order SVU. this might help you get excused. i don't know.
i'm done thank you for reading this blabbing blog
