September 15 Day 921: 0 for 7

And so this episode of my jury duty saga came to a close. I was not selected to be a juror…again (and I do not have to return for the rest of the week.)

This was the seventh time I answered a summons. On average, I get called once every 4-5 years. When I participate in voir dire, I answer questions honestly. “Yes I prefer scientific evidence” and “No I don’t believe ‘beyond a reasonable doubt’ is equivalent to ‘100% certainty’.”

In the future, do you think I can respond to a summons with “I’ve reported seven times before and never been selected. You don’t want me. Can I please be permanently excused? ”
