I was told to be myself, then I was asked to leave but I got to taste justice in tea and biscuit form.

Get out of it? No. Do my duty.

Last time I was on a jury, it was for the sexual assault of a child by her stepfather. Not something I wanted to sit through, but I was called, and I served. The kid certainly deserved at least that much from us.

I got that impression as well. It's also reality, which makes it far less amusing to me.

Unfortunately, the only ones laughing when people were using any excuse they could to get out of jury duty in the case I mentioned were the ones getting out of the duty - they weren't joking as they ran away from something rather important.

I wonder if they accept explosive diarrhea as a legitimate reason. And do we need to provide photographic evidence?

Never been called up for jury duty, several other people in my family have been called up 3-5 times each. Seems like either their rolodex is sticky or my reputation precedes me.
