Jury Duty

Tomorrow, I'm being questioned for the trial I've been put in the pool for. There are many reasons I don't want to do this trial. Really don't want to do it.

1. It's a messy sounding kidnap/rape trial. That in and of itself is unpleasant. I'm really afraid I'm going to be exactly what they are looking for. (IE: Been a victim of a crime versus not real happy with the legal system. You know, something for everyone. That's how I ended up on the last case I was on.)

2. If picked, this trial is scheduled to go on until December 16th. I only get my full wage for five days of jury duty. Livable but unpleasant. I have to find out if I get reduce wage after that or if it just unpaid.

3. The commute to and from Kent sucks. But, this can be alleviated by audio books.

4. I won't be able to talk about it or anything related to it while the trial is going on.

Unfortunately, the "don't wanna" is for all emotional reasons. There isn't a just cause for me to get out of it. Damn me and my sense of civic duty. By the way, don't tell me to lie to get out of it. I have my standards and lying to a court of law is well below that. I'm hoping they get their 12 before they get to me or one of them freaks because I work for a company that makes software for lawyers.
