I have to report for jury duty this morning. I've been on call for a week and was beginning to get comfortable with the idea that I was going to skate on thru without being called. Honestly, I'm not sure if it's such a bad gig. I can't bring my computer but I'll have my phone so I can tweet, email, text and play games. I've been looking for a chance to read more than a paragraph of my book at one time.
On the other hand, I have an important meeting scheduled in my office this afternoon that I will now miss. My employer will not be happy to be on her own with this particular meeting. I've got lots of work that will now go neglected.
Of course it will be an honor, if chosen, to perform my civic duty.
While I'm deciding "should I stay or should I go now", (like I have a choice) please feel free to comment with your advice on how to get out of jury duty, how to make sure you're selected or fun things to do while you wait.
