So, I was assigned to jury duty on August, 3. So why didn't I blog about it until now? Quite frankly, it's because I forgot that I had jury duty. Which means I didn't call in, or anything. So yesterday night, my mom goes "Aiya~ You forgot you had jury duty!" And of course, I panicked. I didn't want to pay any fines, or go to jail, or anything. So today, at work, I called in.
And waited a little more.
Who knew that just calling in to see if your group was called was this difficult?
So I waited a little longer until the lines cleared up. I gave them my participant number, and was promptly told that my group wasn't called, and I was good to go for a year.
Seriously? Ok, I may have exaggerated the time I waited a little, but when you're really nervous about things like this, time tends to crawl. I'm glad that I didn't get in trouble, but that seemed quite anticlimactic.
In any case. They send these summons a month in advance. I don't remember things that long! I knew in the back of my mind that I had jury duty at some point, but I never really remembered when it was. Why couldn't they, I don't know, mail another notice, or email, or call? They have my personal data from the DMV, after all.
Just frustrated by how this thing runs. If you never got a driver's license, you don't get called! Maybe I should've done that just to avoid the headaches that are driving and jury duty. I'll live... in Boston or something, where there's plenty of public transportation.
