I had to report for jury duty today. We discussed what it is and why it is important. The kids asked if one got paid for it. I said no, and one probably should. I also suggested that jury judy should be voluntary.
We then joked a bit about ways to get oneself excused from trials that looked like they might take a long time. My favorite was not to bathe for a week... One has to be careful with what one says, as one is under oath and on public records...
As a matter of fact I got assigned to a trial that was estimated to last 3 weeks. I asked to be excused because I am going on a trip in two weeks. I was, but will have to return in 90 days. Maybe I wont bathe between now and then...
