    When you receive the summons in the mail that notifies you that you will be up for jury duty selection on X Date, you take that notice in to your teachers and employers. At every job I've ever had, they take a copy and keep it on file for the day. Anywhere I've been summonsed, they have a number you call between X hours and Z hours to find out if you're needed. Your employer and your school should have a way for you to notify them after hours even if it's an answering machine. If not, they take breaks and you can go outside and call on the day you're up for selection. It's not a huge deal, it's your civic duty and bottom line: What's worse? A little inconvenience or a fine and some jail time? Or you can go become a convicted felon and never have to worry about it again. Simple.

    Sorry to all of you who think I need an attitude adjustment. I'm sorry I don't think of our justice system as greatly as you do. Frankly I think our justice system is garbage. So because I don't have the same views as you I need an attitude adjustment lol welcome to America! I received my summons a month in advance but not specific days and times and for them to basically tell me that I need to be there at the crack of dawn the night before is a little ridiculous, but then if you don't agree then I need an attitude adjustment. Welcome to America!
    Please tell me what benefits I get from this society? Go ahead, tell me please. I did go by the way, for all of you who are getting your panties in a bunch. I got selected and have to return 2 more days for trail. Tell me how I'm benefiting once more when I miss 2 more days of work and can't afford to buy food on my next paycheck =) I'm listening.

    Feel free to move to a country whose justice system suits you better. Just where might that be? Maybe Indonesia, where I am typing this reply. The system of justice here is swift, and often final. Would that suit you better?

    Just how would YOU improve our system of justice?

    Sorry, but I lose patience with the whiners who complain but are willing to take full advantage of what our country gives us.

    Sorry you think I am whining. If I'm not mistaken I just asked what happens if you don't show up and I think it's absurd at the amount of time they give you before appearing. Not whining, just my opinion and if you can't handle freedom of speech that maybe you should stay in Indonesia.

    And all of these "freedoms" seem to be withering away, don't they?

    The responsibilities of a good citizen are few.

    1. Serve in the military if called.

    2. Serve on a jury if summoned.

    3. Vote.

    I agree the country has taken a turn down hill somewhere around November 2008, but I promise you Obama will not be re-elected in 2016 and hopefully we can get the country pointed back in the right direction come January 2017. Screw the new normal, I liked the old normal.

    One person, one vote. Use it wisely.

    I'm not doubting you but I have never received a jury summons like this in the three different parts of the country I have lived. Mine have always had a specific date, time, and instructions.

    I have had to excuse myself from Jury Duty twice. The date to show up was clearly marked, but the length of duty was not (at that time. I think it usually marked nowadays) I was not ashamed of not serving. I had good reasons. Years later, I went once for the three days of pretrial selection and spent a ton of time and inconvenience and was not selected.

    It's not a crime to excuse yourself from Jury Duty.

    I'd be glad to post a photo of mine if you'd like. No specific nothing.
