I know there are a lot of jury duty threads here, but I feel like whining.... I got a notice earlier in the year for call-in service in March. Since I sub, I couldn't afford to miss a paid day of work, so I requested a postponement. I got the postponement and had to call in on Friday (the last day of school) at 5pm. It instructed me to call in again Monday (today) at noon. I have a pretty low group number. I've stressed all weekend about it because the last time, I got called all the way into the courtroom. It was so intimidating and scary! It was a theft case, and I told the judge I couldn't be impartial having been the victim of a home robbery. I just had no sympathy. He chewed me out about the system being innocent until proven guilty and all that. Then he told me they'd put me on another case. They never did that, but it was not a fun experience. So today I called in at noon and it told me to call in again tomorrow at noon to possibly report at 1pm. I feel like everything is on hold. I can't really go anywhere because I have to stay close enough to the area to get to the courthouse in the middle of the day. Then there's the stress of the whole questioning thing if I do get called in. Plus, if I do end up on a jury, how long will that last? Two days? Two weeks? I hate the feeling that this is not under my control at all. There's really got to be a better way for this system to work.
