jury's out

I've been summoned for jury duty tomorrow! I am SO excited. Seriously. I've wanted to be part of a jury for a long, long time, so I was so surprised and excited to find a summons notice in my mailbox a few weeks ago.

Of course, I realize that I will likely spend most of tomorrow sitting around a waiting room, but I am hoping to get called and added to the jury. It's my civic duty :)

So, any words of wisdom on what to say to be picked?!

I didn't even get called to get picked, so I have no advice...but they have wireless, so if you want to bring your laptop it definitely helps pass the time!

what to say depends on the case and what they're looking for. for the most part if you're fair and want justice for people you'll get picked simply because that appeals to the prosec. & defense... then again young professional white girl may not work for either side so it might not matter what you say

ps. you're crazy

I've never been picked to be on the jury, but getting to go to the court house for the process is kind of fun! I would recommend bringing a book or magazine incase things are running slowwwwww.

I've been picked before but I wasn't excited about it. I really wanted to go home. :) I've heard if you're quiet, they're more likely to pick you.
