    @agingermom - I would have done it since I've never been on a jury but I HATE being the center of attention and having that room full of people looking at me and then laughing at my answers I was a total mess, the defense attorney was asking me all kinds of questions, I'm seriously uncomfortable and then in response to one of his questions I said something about the gal had to have done something wrong or she wouldn't be in the court room and ding ding ding defense attorney says Leesa's outta here!!!

    A murder case?! woah!!!! I had grand jury duty for 3 months (twice a month), but it wasn't that bad. It was actually fun.

    My stomach sunk when I heard the word "murder" so for me it was a big Woah!!! but that is probably because I watch way too much of the crime type shows NCIS, Criminal Minds & Cold Case being three of my favorite shows LOL

    I feel the same way!!!! It is possibly going to mess up my daycare situation and it puts me behind at work! I have it the first week in March. I work for the municipal courts so idk how that will effect me being picked or not. I may try @Heff102 's idea!

    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Another way is while jury selection is going on look up at the ceiling and start talking and yelling at someone imaginary.

    Works every time!

    Definitely felt this way at first. I am self employed, and the only employee, so it was hard for me. Grand jury i think is way better than the normal stuff. You basically listen to cops and witnesses tell all the gossip of crimes in your area and you decide whether there is enough evidence to indite.

    I WISH I got grand jury. I got summonsed as a petit juror. While some cases could be very interesting, some would for sure be boring. Working in the court system makes me interested to some extent, but I deal with so much of it on a daily basis that I'm also happy to not be involved in a case.
