So the right before thanksgiving I get my first jury duty summons in the mail…I’ve never done it before but I’ve heard the horror stories about it so I wasn’t even tryin to do it…so I look on the piece of devil mail for the excuse section and they have the nerve to list the excuses that you can use. So I copy down the excuse that worked for me…it said something like “I am a teacher in a K-12 public educational institution.” So I’m thinking….they can’t have me come to court when it’s durin the regular school year right??? They know that the kids needs theys edujamacation right. So I had smile on my face as I put the devil mail back in the mailbox.
The summons said that if you don’t hear from them then ur excuse was accepted so yall know I wasn’t looking for a letter or a phone call from them. Cuz I jus knew that since sent my letter back so they would leave me alone. Yeaaahhh no…yall know these jerks sent me a letter in all caps…like Satan himself was speakin YOUR REQUEST HAS BEEN DENIED YOU WILL REPORT ON JAN 14TH AT 8:45….so yall know I was pissed about that….wut in the damn injustice system….not only did they deny my request but then had the nerve to tell me when to show up.
So I had to put a master plan into effect of how to get outta it….well I knew that every excuse I thought of wouldn’t work…so I show up yesterday morning and there were like 75 people there..I heard they only needed 23 jurors so I jus knew I was gonna get picked…yeaaaahhhh no..yall know I was the fourth person called to be a juror…I damn near cried when they called my name….uggghhhh
So for those of u who have had jury duty before know the part when the judge asks u a bunch of questions to see if you can actually serve….well I raised my hand a couple of times and the judge said he wanted to see me for a sidebar convo….so after talking to him and tryin to figure out how I can get this man to let me off the hook…I ended up telling him that I hated the cops lol..I wish yall coulda seen his face….how the hell did I tell Your Honor that I hated cops while I was surrounded by the police…lol…I jus knew that would get me outta jury duty….yeaaaaahhh noooooo..they told me to sit my black ass back wit the rest of the jurors.
So after being picked to serve as a grand juror (oh joy) they put us thru orientation and I swear the many wouldn’t shut the hell up…how the hell can I fall asleep and wake up and his ass was still talking…ummmm helloooooo….SHUT THE HELL UP MAN!!!!!!!!!! They told us that we would have to serve jury duty every wed and fri from 9-4 until march 6th….wut the hell kinda devil work is this…don’t they understand that I’m a teacher and if im not in school the kids don’t learn..if the kids don’t learn they can’t pass the tests..if they fail the district looks at me….can we say bullshit….im telling u it’s the injustice system….I have a feeling that Imma have some stories for yall from this bullshit…pray for me...case dismissed lol
