Default Duty Calls

Jury Duty that is.
suckers haven't found me for like 8 years. Prior to that I only was called once in my life.

and I was called for a case then.


Has anybody ever been called on a case before?

just to be clear with my poll.

NO means ... I have been summoned but not chosen.

YES means...I have been summoned and put on a Jury

and well.. Never means Never

Show extreme bias in your interview. They'll dump you.

Work on this:

1. You hate murder, and all murderers should hang.
2. You hate rape, and all rapists should be beheaded.
3. You hate fraud, and think all things regarding money would probably just **** you off.
4. Hate crimes should be settled between both parties in a parking lot after dark.
5. .......you get where this is going.

I thought that the last time I was going there and then when they ask if I have any reason why?

I end up saying no




what can I say. I'm for the most part, an Honest person.

(my post above was a joke, it won't work, they can read it a mile away, and not all jury selections offer that opportunity to answer detailed questions, unless the case is VERY high profile).
