Confession: I am outraged I have to report for jury duty
A. I will be in the third trimester by then. Being hugely pregnant is NOT a viable excuse.
B. I have a toddler. They don't care about that. It is not permitted to take kids with you to the courthouse.
C. If they make me go BACK in a few months, I'll be nursing a newborn. Breastfeeding is not a viable excuse either. I DO NOT pump! I am a SAHM so I do not need to pump (pumping sucks - anyone who does that regularly gets hugs from me!)
D. My friend who had catastrophic injuries after falling from a great height about a year ago has been called to serve. SHE HAS A FUCKING BACK BRACE and is having surgery on her back *again.* She barely can do anything at this point. O.0 I think anyone with a BACK BRACE who cannot sit for long periods whatsoever should be automatically excused without having to show up. She has a long ass drive to get there.
I think anyone with painful disabilities/long-term injuries should not have to show up. Anyone with under school age kids shouldn't have to serve. Any woman/SAHDad who has an infant shouldn't have to serve!
If they do not automatically excuse me due to being pregnant I will force the issue by somehow letting it be known that I am a filthy dirty Canadian socialist that believes in same-sex marriage rights, universal health care, taking care of poor people, free college education and I dunno...I'll come up with something offensive that will make them think I am too biased.
If I didn't have small kids/fetus I would serve, seriously.
