    Sorry to say this its probably easier for you to don a MAGA hat while wearing a Mich Ultra shirt than to pull off BLM. Or you can wear a "Gary was the Best Singer in VH. Change my mind"

    That said plenty of options. Lets Go Brandon shirt. Maybe buy a shirt iwth Musk on it. Better yet pull out one of your old Cleveland Indians shirt. Bonus points if teh Chief is on it. Shit maybe a shirt with Putin on the front. That would do wonders. If you need to, I can loan you some of my Parma garb. If they see you with black socks, sandala with a pink flamingo they surely will remove you from Jury duty

    Last two times I was called I was there for three days each time and never asked a single question. I kind of want to know what the reaction would be to some of my answers, but there's not a lot more boring than sitting in a courtroom and watching lawyers ask potential jurors the same questions over and over and over and then being sent home after doing nothing.

    Question to people here.

    How often have you been asked to do jury duty? Reason why I ask is outside of being asked while stationed in Scotland I have never been asked.

    I've been sent the letters a few times in my life and never responded. Do I care? No. I don't give a shit about jury duty.

    Roughly once per year since I was 18. Early on, typically, I never even had to go in. You call in the night before to make sure you are still needed and quite often the answer was no.

    If you did have to go in, you'd usually be dismissed at the first posting of who is staying and who is going. This was explained to me as prosecutorial pressure for the accused take a plea deal. "We are ready to pick a jury right now, so it's your last chance to plea to 3 years or face 25," type of thing.

    However, the last few times I have either had to stay all day or, as I said above, stayed for THREE days for them to pick a jury I wasn't on.

    The one time I misheard the recording and thought I didn't have to go in, I got a letter stating if I didn't go in to this next date, a bench warrant would be issued for my arrest.

    I did it once about 15 years ago but was let go without ever seeing the trial because they reached an agreement behind closed doors. Spent the entire day sitting in the halls of the court house just the same.

    Oh look... they require I have a photo ID.

    About every 3 years I get a letter. Similar experiences to LoveMachine - sit in a Jury pool for a couple days, never get selected to sit in on a trial or there's a settlement.

    I hadn't been asked for many years, like a decade at least, and then was summoned about 8 yrs ago; then 4 yrs ago and then this past March. I've gone to the courthouse 4 times in my life--all 4x was sent home, never asked one question. This year, mercifully, when I called in the Friday before, I got the beautiful message it was canceled. First time that's happened!
