Jury Duty Calls 14 years 2 months ago #25

I am totally serious...and I think it is sexist...I mean my wife - even before marriage only got called once - where I was called at least 5 times before marriage...and since then I have been called 6-7 times and she has been called once tops...

Now maybe I am an exception as my dad and I have the same name...or maybe it is where I live...but it totally stinks. I do not have a problem with doing the double re-schedule thing as I feel at most you should not have to serve more than once every two - to three years...

Thanks Doug - now I will go back to being a NON-Voter as that tid-bit is just adding to my dilemma.

Very weird, I have been voting for 10 years and been driving all that time and have never been called up.

WOW :shock: , you said it.


So are you agreeing with me that I'm rambling? Or my argument about women on the hunt?
*little laugh*

Women on the hunt.
Its funny how something that takes multiple days to set up comes down in a few hours...

Ahh yes, nothing more dangerous than those women on the hunt. I think part of it is also territorial marking. Ahh yes, and here we have the purple cloud of death marking female A's hunting grounds. Where as 30 paces over is the fuschia cloud of death marking female B's hunting grounds. And stare downs or cat fights can ensue when territorial boundries are crossed, or challenges are issued by other female hunters.
Its a scary thing. So if you see or are up wind of a cloud of death run for your lives. I know I do. Not that I'm anything someone would prey upon. But because that stuff kills me. Along with many other products people use, thus why I safely stay in my little tree hollow, and sew. Cause you know its a dangerous place out there!

Btw, Douglas, sorry about the off topic rant. But would the forum really expect anything else from me? ;)

What percentage of the population actually commits crimes worthy of having a jury trial????

Every 3 years seems excessive as well.
