Duty Update - Annoying Bureaucracy Alert
As of this post, I have only been getting an official court recorded "all circuits are busy" notice on the Federal Jury Duty phone number that is supposed to tell me if I should report to the Federal Courthouse in Springfield tomorrow. Because the mailed notice I received says very bluntly that a juror will not be paid nor reimbursed if they show up on a day that they are not called, I don't think I'll be making the 150 mile round trip to Springfield while missing a day of work.
As civic-minded as I claim to be, I cannot afford the gas nor the lost wages if the whole exercise is for naught. Hopefully the recorded message on the phone will change by the time I go to bed tonight.
