So here I am, minding my own business, when DM calls. They got a letter summoning me to jury duty. Being that juries are overseen by the government, its only natural for them to call me up by my maiden name, at my parents house, after I have gotten preggers with DB#2 and have been married for several years. I'm calling in to get out but its a pain since, of course, I don't have the letter in hand.
To even go for the first day of summons, I would need to get someone to watch DD all day (its an eight hour wait to be called on average). Also, I have no ID under my maiden name. If I get called for jury duty for reals, no way is the "pay" covering the cost of childcare. And what am I going to do on a jury, call a recess so I can hit the women's room every 20 minutes? Also, food: I need it every so often or we will be recessing because I threw up. Yup, I'm still sick.
Okay, rant over *sigh*.
PS I am totally going if they say I need to, I'm not going to skip, I'm just frusterated that they can't find enough non pregnant people to do this. I actually wanted to go during college for the experience (law is fun to me, what can I say?). Of course, no one called me then....
