Well, well, well... I just spent several hours waiting to see if I would be selected for jury duty.

If my name would have been called, and I was questioned, I probably would have been excused. It was a civil matter and I have taken numerous calls from one party involved, over the years, and have a working relationship with the other.

I could just see me being called for a local criminal case. It would be one of my regulars, I am sure. "Can you put aside all personal feelings and make a non biased decision?"

Hell no!!! Lol.

Yes, I actually could (I have to do it on the job) but they don't need to know that.

The lack of exemptions means that you don't get called as often. I was just summoned to serve on 2/4 and it's been about 8 years since I served last time.
