    Some murderer will probably get set free.

    It's Wednesday. If you have a high number, you probably won't be called anyway.

    They'll kill you using a flamethrower and as you burn they'll throw acid over you just to finish you off.
    That's all they do I think.

    Could you tell them you have a funeral? I called into jury duty from the hospital and they excused me (they didn't ask for proof I was in the hospital, but I was so I could have proved it).

    They will probably re-call you in a couple months.

    Nothing. I got a couple notices by regular mail and eventually a certified letter I had to sign for. Didn't respond to any of it. Am still a free man.

    Unless that severe audit from the IRS was somehow related...

    Wasnt there a jury duty questionnaire that you had to complete and return?

    I got out of it the first time by saying that I had IBS which can result in the shitting of my pants.

    I submitted the same excuse the second time but it didnt work. :(

    Or you could try this guy's "approach":

    I thought saying you can't leave work always works.

    The chances are you wont get called. But if you do, and don't show up the judge could issue a bench warrant. That's very unlikely, they just don't have time. Usually only happens when there is a campaign to make examples of people, highly publicized, and very unlikely. If you are actually needed what is more likely is they will send you a scary letter telling you that you could be in trouble and to contact the court immediately blah blah. If you call they'll just reschedule you.

    Nothing but you will be called again within months, If you miss that time then a bench warrant will be issued for your arrested for failure to appear at court. Now that doesn't mean a officer is looking for you but if your stopped by a cop for speeding or any other reason your going to jail and going have to bail yourself out.

    Just go is the bottom line more then likely your just sitting around all day and will never serve on a jury. Bring shit to read or watch
