A valid jury duty excuse should be: Startup founder. You keep me away from my work for more than a day and the entirety of my future will be crushed, thousands of future jobs lost, and thus an increase of crime and need for more jurors.
Also, how is this county so damn big? Just my luck I live on the extreme north end of it, and this court house is 45 minutes away with no traffic, and I'm expected to go at rush hour through the worst parts of bay area traffic.
I'm most likely not going to make it. I have training in the morning to help heal my sprained ankle, which is unfortunately my clutch foot. So here's to potentially 2 hours of traffic on a shit ankle in traffic! I'm going to miss the 9am Jury Duty call by an hour. Then what, do it all over again because I couldn't make the ridiculous drive?
Yeah, let's get a doctor's note a day before by spending hours in an E.R. for something that can be healed with RICE, just so I can make it to Jury Duty.
I really really hate this shit. It could be so much easier.
