Miss Information is annoyed by the court system

Oooooh, is Miss Information ever annoyed. A couple of weeks ago she received a notice to appear for jury duty. She immediately went into a panic because the court date is only a week before summer school starts. Surely those axe-murderer murder trials take longer than a week. She called the number on the summons. Got in touch with a very nice lady who said that this wasn't a problem. If Miss Information would provide them with proof that she was enrolled they would postpone her jury service.

Phew. Relief. Miss Information set about obtaining proof. Amazingly, but given past experience, perhaps not surprisingly, the library school faculty can't actually provide this sort of thing. It's ok. Miss Information doesn't always admit she knows them either. Anyway some kind of academic red-tape made it impossible for them to say officially that she's taking summer school classes. They were nice about it and offered to print out a copy of her timetable and date stamp it, which is the library equivalent of a Papal decree. Miss Information dutifully sent this off to those nice court people and offered to work a bunch of extra hours that week, because hey, what else was she gonna be doing?

Well, the court bastards got in touch yesterday. They see from Miss Information's timetable that she only has class two afternoons a week, so that doesn't really count. While two afternoons a week may not be significant to lawyers, they are quite important to Miss Information who plans to be at every one of those damn lectures. She keeps thinking about those lengthy axe-murder murder trials. What's she supposed to do? Ask the court for a continuance when she has to leave for serials management class?

The court woman seemed sympathetic. She suggested that Miss Information could try a financial hardship excuse. However, the damn library union has seen to it that all employees are paid for jury duty. This however only applies to regular hours and not all those lovely extra hours that Miss Information had scheduled. The courts have therefore managed to piss off all sorts of library staff who now have Emmental instead of schedules. Not to mention that Miss Information is ever so cranky about the whole thing.

What the courts fail to realize is that annoying Miss Information simply doesn't work in their favour. It makes her want revenge but not in a “let's lock up the axe murderer forever” way—more like “hey, buddy, nice axe--let's smash stuff!”

So Monday morning Miss Information is on jury duty. They better have pastry.

my mother had a similar issue as a college music teacher and thankfully got off the case since the case turned out to be a 6month long ordeal
about an embezzler/bribery case..

One of the reasons I waited forever to register to vote was to avoid Jury Duty ;)

but good luck! maybe you can convince them that you're not the girl for the task?

And I usually get jury duty notices only *after* I move away. Recently I received one from a state I left in November 2006! They said I should tell the registrar of voters, but, you know what, that was two states ago for me!

BTW, in many states they also use driver's licence/state id, and even tax return info.

Next time see if you can get your doctor to write a medical reason you can't serve. Both my mom and I have bladder/kidney problems and both of us get out of jury duty because of this. Maybe Miss Information can claim severe irritable bowel syndrome?
