I work in the office that the jury duty notices come from (please dont hate me for that LOL).
I know most everyone hates showing up for jury duty, but come on people have some shame and use your brain just a little.
Here are some excuses i get from people:
I have diarreah. (they will call with this one a week in advance)
I am bipolar
I have allergies
I have to milk my cow and i am the only one that can do it.
I dont want too unless i know what the case is about.
Then there are those calls that come in that people are claiming an exemption and want to know how they get the card back to us. We tell them you can either drop it by our office or mail it into the address on the card.
Then they will say "well how do i do that, i put it in the mailbox and it came back"
Well, did you put it in an envelope and put a stam on it?
There like "no, i have to do that?
Well yes, it is just like mailing anything else.
I know most of us on here could claim the exemption for having children to take care of, but have you ever tried to use a crazy excuse before. LOL

I could come up with a more believable excuse. "I'm allergic to the cows I have to milk and that causes me to have to take more of my bipolar medications which then causes me to get diarrhea for more than a week".
