Law

how to convey your hesitance to serve on a jury

montanajury2

This is an actual request to be dropped from a jury pool.  It’s even been notarized.  What I want to know is….how many wrinkles does this guy’s dog’s balls have?  And, did it work?  Was he released from jury duty or not?

  1. He could have done what my soon-to-ex did–ignore the notice completely. Yep. Nothing happened. Nada.

  2. Everyman Erik explicitly explains excuse. Exercises exacting English. Everyone’s ecstatic. Except Eleanor, Elaine, Ethel.

  3. If they want people to go on jury duty, or dury juty, they should pay them their same earnings, no? Or have insurance for it, or something?

  4. I wish I had this guy’s nerve. I get called to jury duty regularly. I was actually picked once. A fellow juror told me she knew I’d get picked because “I sounded way too smart.” Hmmmm. I’d really love to know if this guy got away with not serving and they did leave him the **** alone. Well, it’s one way of saying I don’t want to serve.

  5. What I loved was that he’ll write “goddamn” in full, but resorts to “F _ _ K” later on.

  8. I love jury duty except that I keep getting excused. I take it personally. Why won’t anyone let me be on a jury?

  9. That’s funny. I wonder the same things you do. Did it work? I think he’s great!

  10. Why didn’t he just do what everyone else does and walk in screaming “GIVE HIM THE CHAIR!!”?

  11. I really hope he got picked.

  12. Love it. Must be from KY. I also like that it is posted from a mac! Gives it that “touch of class” which otherwise would be missing.

  13. PrefersFantasyLive, Really? I’ll have to remember that option if need be.

    AvatGardener, LOL! Hilarious….poor E’s.

    SSG, I think most companies allow it to be like paid vacation, but I’m not sure. That doesn’t help, of course, if you’re self-employed.

    SurprisedMom, I’ve never been called. Once, I was supposed to be, but I’d just moved to another county, so they had to release me. I thought it’d be fun, since I was a law student at the time.

    SciFiDad, Good eye! I wondered that myself.

    Avitable, It is. An under-appreciated art, that ball wrinkle counting.

    WeaselMama, I don’t think I could come up with ball wrinkle counting.

    Stephanie, Haha to you, too.

    Brenda, Because they read your confessionals on my blog.

    Chris, We may never know. It’s from Montana, so I’ll have to make some phone calls and find out later.

    MissBritt, That’s always a great suggestion, unless it’s a civil trial, of course. Wait, that’s even better.

    Blues Oh my indeed.

    FreeMan, I do, too. And, I hope he has a blog.

    Harlin, I aim to please you. He’s actually from Montana.

  14. I just go with the “I listen to conservative talk radio” excuse.

  15. I’m with Avitable on this one. Don’t mess with ball wrinkle counting. It’s hard work! (ha! I just said ‘hard’)
