Amy Austin’s Jury Duty Woes

Jury Duty

According to Merriam Webster dictionary a jury is: a group of people who are members of the public and are chosen to make a decision in a legal case. I have been going to Jury Duty ever since I’ve been eligible to go.

I really don’t look at it like most people do, you know, like a chore. I look at it, well, as my civic duty. Yes, it can be boring and yes if you work it’s a pain because you have to eventually make up the work you missed, but if we don’t participate, then what will happen to our right to a trial?Think about it.

So here is my question, why am I never picked to actually serve on the jury? Here’s the deal – I get a summons every six months like clockwork. It’s been that way for as long as I can remember, at least since the early ’90’s.

I always, (and I’m not joking), get on a panel (which gets my hopes up) and spend most of the day at the courthouse and then, BAM! I never make it on the jury. I’m starting to get a complex, seriously! Is it the way I look or not look? Is it because I seem too eager? I don’t know. I do know I am the only person I know that actually would like to serve and I never get the chance.

I thought some of you guys may have an idea what’s going on. If you do, please let me know. So six months from now, I’ll get my yellow summons in the mail, and I’ll get my hopes up again to see justice and how it works, only to have the rug pulled out from under me. But one day I know I will see justice served, cause I’ll be on a jury!
