I'm glad someone is catching up with at least one of these slackers. I don't know how others may feel but, I've served on six or so juries and it really irritates me when I hear some these jokers with their obviously phony excuses evading what I consider to be an honor and a duty.

about 2 yrs ago i was called in for jury duty...only reason i was excused was bc im a fulltime college student and go to school every day of the week usually...and i couldnt miss bc it was around midterms. so someone i know that works at the clerk of courts office took my letter up there and i was excused..else i would have went.
