So I got out of jury duty, but I was pretty seriously stressed out about it, because when we arrived we were told that the trial would be lasting through mid-march. I got released because of "personal hardship" –- if I had to miss 23 school days I wouldn't get a teaching credential.
So all in all, it was pretty good. I can't get called in again for another year, I got to read 87 pages of A.J.P Taylor's origins of the second world war, and watched a neat-o instructional video on why we should be excited to get called in for Jury Duty.
