          I gave my mgr the Juror notice but she also knows that I served as a Juror last year...which is the reason they excused me. Now I'm wondering if she'll be questioning whether I was at court all day or not...or does that even matter. agghhhh

          I so don't want to go in to work

              The one time I went in, I was in summer school in college taking calculus. As soon as I told the judge my calculus final exam was that same week, everyone in the court room grimaced and he let me go immediately. But I had already missed class for the day, oh well.

              Funny this was brought up...FI had to go to jury duty today. He is a high school teacher though, so he isn't missing work.

                I just hope my manager doesnt question it since she knows I served last year.

                  that would really suck if she questioned you - you're a grown adult!

                    I know!! She's a bit anal like that...I'll just say I had to wait around court all day and they dismissed me in the afternoon.

                    when i served as a juror last year, there were still people who were called in to cases that had served in the past 3 years...they were asked if they served within that time frame and were sent back to the assembly room to wait some more.

                    oh well. I'm going to take a chance and not go in. wish me luck. LOL

                      What typically happens when you ignore a notification letter saying that you've been selected as a Jury Candidate?
