I am off work today and ran to the store at 8am for our weekly groceries, come back around 9am to a msg on our home phone . . . "You were summoned for jury duty this morning at 8:30am....I am assuming you are on your way . . . please come to yada yada . . . "
I recall getting info in the mail about 'you might be summoned' but there was never a date and time on the form.
I called the gal back and had to leave a message telling her I had NO idea and to please call me back.
I have never been summoned before and while I would be fine sitting on a jury, I have shirked my American responsibilities - naughty me.
So, I sit here at home, on my only day off this week, awaiting a warrant for my arrest and a cop to bust down my door. Har.
Has anyone else ever missed jury duty - either on accident or on purpose?
I am hoping they will simply call me back and let me know that I will be summoned for a future date.....
