I tried to get out of jury duty as well UNTIL i thought about all the black people i could possibly help out(this excludes rapists, murderers, etc). So many of us are arrested for BS. If you jumped a turnstyle, were caught with an open container of alcohol and you're black, or something minor like that, I'm letting you go. I see white people get away with having open containers of alcohol and being visibly drunk ALL the time and ive never seen ONE arrested.

But I would call the clerk and get transferred.
Lol don't say you have to work.everybody does
 
If I call to get transferred do I still have to go? I hate traveling to downtown Chicago in the morning. That's why I left my job in the first place.

Now that I'm no longer a student,& have used up all the chances I had of deferring jury duty, I have to serve in June. Kind of excited about it actually
 
If I go, I'm taking my baby with me. I have a daycare but no one to care for my own; how ironic. They will kick me out once they get a whiff of this one year old of mines. lmao

Not if you get transferred but you will probably have another notice in the mail in couple months for a new trial

You just sit there and listen to people right? I have ADD-OCD-ish tendencies; not a good thing for me.

I  have enjoyed it the times I served. But my sis said she got out of it recently by saying it would be a financial hardship for her since she'd have to hire someone to cover her cases while she was on duty. They let her go.

Oh yeah, Purp?
 
 
I have really gotten a lazy. It's so much more convenient waking up, putting on my jogging pants and my daycare shirt to go to work downstairs in my home. I really don't wanna make this commute. Plus, I'm gonna miss my baby. She hasn't been away from me for a long period of time.

Had jury duty last month.  No one got chosen that day.  We were all happy.  All the cases....I can't remember what it was called but the judges decided the case.  We weren't need.  Halleluyer.
