I must be of the perfect demographic or something because I’m always being called for jury duty. A couple years ago I was on a federal grand jury. That meant that every fourth week I had to drive to Cleveland, a one hour forty-five minute drive) for 1-3 days during that week. This went on for 18 months. Needless to say, it was a HUGE hassle. Some things I heard were interesting and eye opening. I’ve taken an oath of secrecy and can never talk about them and they burned out notebooks after our stint was over. Last year I was summoned to state jury duty up in Akron for a 3 month period.
Just last week I got jury summons for Sept 2012-August 2013 for our county. I was also called for county jury duty during my term of federal grand jury so I got off the hook a few years ago. I’m not sure why I get the ‘privilege’ of being called all the time, Mr Chiots has never been summoned for jury duty. I am more than happy to participate as my civic duty, but it’s getting a little ridiculous.
