When I got my first jury duty summons a few years back, I didn’t end up having to go in. Last year I got another summons and I rescheduled because it was for two days before I was due to give birth. So we will see in April if I need to serve or not.

My husband (24) and I (21) have never been summoned, although I’d like to at least be that. My best friend was summoned but couldn’t do it due to a university commitment. It seems like a good experience 🙂

I picked “other” because as a lawyer I’m exempt from serving jury duty… it’s kind of a shame really because I’m probably one of the few people who would really enjoy it 😀

@Pinkmoon: I was not a registered voter when I got summoned, so I don’t think that affects your odds of getting picked. I had just filed my taxes for the first time the year before, so I think that’s how I ended up on the list at 19.

@jwdesiree: I got out of the one I was sent because I was still in college and out of state… but my dad got like five summons within a few year period. After the last one, he called them up asking if that was normal. They said no, it’s not normal, and took him off the list! I don’t know if he’s gotten a summons since then.

@jwdesiree: I am going on Tuesday next week which is so funny that you posted this now.

So, just wanted to chime in again…like I said, everyone at my PO box has already received a summons in the last three months, and then Fiance just got another summons in the mail TODAY! And apparently, it doesn’t count that he served a couple of months ago because it’s not the same calendar year!
WTF this town is not that small!

I’ve never been summoned, but my brother was recently on the jury for an attempted murder case in NYC.
@boogiewoogies: Oh, wow. That’s crazy!

I’ve been summoned to serve six times since I was 18. I haven’t actually been on a jury, I’ve been able to get out of it for various reasons.

I’ve never been asked and if I was, I’d make up a wonderful excuse.
