Today I got a jury summons in the mail. See, I have no problem with jury duty really and would kind of like to be put on a case. What I do have a problem with is the fact that I have been summoned 6 times! I'm only 32 years old, is this even possible?! Here is how it's gone for me:
First summons I was 18 and STILL in high school. I managed to get out of it seeing how I was STILL in high school. Second summons I was in my second year of college and swimming competitively. I managed to get out of it because I was in college and swimming competitively. Third summons, this one was a doosey. I moved to Boston, MA in 1996, stayed for a year and then moved back home. I never filed taxes in Boston because I was never "technically" considered a resident. Three shorts months after moving back to California I got a juror summons for Boston in CA. I filed it out saying I would love to come if they would provide a plane ticket back! My fourth summons I was actually told to come in and proceeded to spend 8 lovely hours in a room full of people watching horrible 80's movies. My name was never called and I was released. My fifth summons I just kept calling the phone number and was finally told that I was released.
Now we are at number 6. This comes conveniently when I have to find a new job. That will be a fun one to tell the new employer. "Hey, thanks for hiring me. By the way, I won't be in the office cause I have jury duty!"
I wonder if I would be this lucky playing the Lotto?! How many times have you all been summoned?
