Around here there was an exemption if you were a sole proprietor and cried hardship on your clients etc.

Last I checked a few years ago when summoned the policy was,
No mercy, no quarter. Bring your own Led Zep tunes.

Edit to insert newly learned acronym.
The court says, "idgaf". :rof:

Often times the summons lands in the bushes instead of the mailbox, strangest thing. It's barely legible after it turns up a few months later.

When you are my age you are excused from jury duty.

I was called to a murder trial. The lady who was the victim happened to occasionally go to the church I attended. When I told the judge that I knew who she was, I was dismissed. It was a sad and gruesome case. Her husband strangled her to death when she asked for a divorce....go to jail for that? "Hey, babe, don't let the door hit your butt...get out." What an utter waste of your life and hers.

I was called for jury duty a few years back. I went and was in the second group called in for consideration. The case was a kidnapping and rape case. The defense lawyer asked me if this was my first time in the court as a potential juror. I replied, “As a potential juror, yes”. He said, “But you have been in this courtroom before in some other capacity?” I said, “Yes, sir. A couple of months ago I was in this courtroom as an expert witness for the attorney sitting at the other table over there.” A few minutes later I was back at my office.
I was excused when I admitted that I knew both of the lawyers involved.

I bet you would be excused if you lost control of your bodily functions on the court room floor.
And your Walkman went to speaker and played Zappas Wonderful Wino. :rof:
