I was excused form jury duty! Yaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You’ll excuse the celebration. I’m not actually opposed to fulfilling this civic duty. It’s simply a huge hassle.
I know I likely wouldn’t be chosen to actually serve anyway (based on my occupation if nothing else). Worse, I would have to go further to get from my house to the courthouse in my current county than to get to the courthouse in my old county (20 miles versus 17). Worse still, a bus goes straight from my house to the old county courthouse but not the one in the new county. It’s a huge effort to go through only to be told my help isn’t needed anyway.
I’m simply glad I don’t have to suffer through that hassle.
