I have jury duty next week. They don't even pay you at all unless you get on a jury, then it's only $12 a day. Prisoners making license plates can earn more. And they why no one wants to do it. I've vowed I will not get on a jury and will do the bare minimum to get out of there as soon as possible.They don't even have free parking. The courthouse is quite some distance from where I live. There is nothing good to be obtained from this.
At first I thought it was my civic duty and all that nonsense. Then I got it deferred. Now, I have to deal with it. I haven't decided if I'll claim bias or show up with aluminum, foil on my head to stop the aliens from listening to my thoughts.
