Afternoon all.

I'm not a happy camper today. I just received a notice to call about jury duty next month. I really cannot handle that again! I don't know why they keep bothering me. I've never had a license or been registered to vote (which is how they say they get your info). frown cry

The last summons for jury duty I got was for Federal jury duty about 4 years ago! I would have loved to do it, but I would have had to drive an hour into downtown St. Louis every day for it. I had to testify for one of my cases when I was working at the Federal courthouse and the parking was a nightmare. The guy had a Federal arson charge after he set fire to his gas station just hours after I had done an inspection of his gasoline tanks. He was convicted and sentenced to 5 years. Four years ago, I had just had major surgery and got an excuse from my doctor to excuse me. It was accepted. Maybe you can get one too???

Last time I went I was 10-15 miles from home at 9:30 pm with no buses running to get home. Had to trust a fellow juror who I had a bit of a language barrier with to get me home. Probably would have been there all night except half of us changed our votes to match the other half so we could get the heck out of there. Jury duty is a joke in my book, except it's not a funny joke - it's a dirty joke!

I can't get a doctor's excuse because I don't have a doctor.

This is only a "stand-by" notice but I'm sure nobody is wanting to do jury duty during the pandemic so I'm sure I'll have to go. That's how my world works.

The first time I went I was even farther from home with no bus service at the time we got out. It was in the daytime but a suburb and the bus didn't run for several hours during the day. That time I sat in the middle of the court house (didn't go into the courtroom waiting room place for at least a half hour because I didn't realize I was in the wrong place. I had asked somebody but they would not help me, just told me to "move along". I finally figured it out by observing while sitting.

I got a summons for jury duty a couple of weeks ago. I got a 4-month extension for the time being, but I have several excuses for not being able to go at all, so I am hoping that they will see things my way when I get another summons in June. The courthouse I get summoned to is 45 miles away and I would have to rent a car to get there because our car has a slipping transmission and we don't go anywhere in it except for shopping, etc., which is three miles away. There was a courthouse about 10 miles away, but they closed that down several years ago.

oldbroad, since you rely on public transportation, I wonder why that wouldn't be a good excuse for you? You have to way to get home? They can't expect you to sleep on the courthouse steps?!

A while back, I was getting summoned almost every other year, and ended up on two juries; a malpractice, and one with punitive damages from a fatal car crash. But were interesting, educational experiences in civil law suits, and both were in main federal building in downtown Chicago. The last summons I had was to appear at the criminal courts building, the world of harder criminals. I was scared about even being around that neighborhood and had no one to go with me, so my therapist wrote up an letter which they honored. Knock on wood, I've not been summoned since. Thank God.


Life's a puzzle; one piece at a time.

butterflybabe - If you mean 26th & California, that's the one I was at at 9:30 pm! The other one I was stranded at was in Skokie. Downtown was okay when I went but not anymore. This time (if I have to go) is in Maywood. I checked the buses - not going to happen - 2 buses and a 2 mile walk, one on each end of the buses. Now, to be perfectly honest, my brother will take me and pick me up, however, I don't feel that is the way it should be!

And they don't need to know that either. Just plead transportation issues and that you don't drive.

The rules in my county say that if you have transportation issues that you need to appear the first day of the summons for jury duty and tell that to the judge, who will then possibly excuse you if warranted. I said to them when I called - how am I supposed to show up on the first day of court and tell the judge that I have transportation issues, if I don't have transportation to get there to tell them that? They did not directly answer my question, but instead gave me a 4-month postponement. When I get the next summons in June, it will be interesting to see how they reply to my question.

Exactly Marian. I know that they will actually tell you how to get there using public transportation but don't take into consideration all of the factors, such as how often that transportation runs and how late etc. That was my issue in the past, it was not considered a reason.

Good luck to you! Are you old enough to get out for your age? If I was a couple of years older, I could use that!

I am just not sure if I should call and open up that can of worms for a "stand by" notice but if I wait then it's right there in my face and no option except to go or ignore the summons.

In my county you have to be 70 years old to get out of it due to age. Not there yet.

I thought they changed it from 70 to 65 here, but in re-reading it, one page says 70 and a second page says 65 so I am not sure. Maybe you have to go for possible selection until you are 70 but if you are between 65 and 70 you can then turn them down in person??

PS - I know you are not 70, but was not sure about the rules out there smile

I am not sure about whether the rules consider 65 years or older a reason to be excused if you appear before the judge. I was going by the fact that the jury summons itself only shows possibly being able to excuse yourself if you are 70 years or older.

Hi all.

Oldbroad, I wish I could help with your dilemma. I know how hard it is to have to rely on public transportation that isn't set up for more rural routes. In my days at York University, when I didn't drive and had no car, I was often left taking public transit late at night when I felt unsafe waiting for hours for a bus connection. At the time, York was at the very northern edge of Toronto and the bus service was infrequent. I'd come home from my part-time job downtown in the winter and it would be dark and very cold, and I would freeze while waiting. It's exhausting.

Finally, spring is really here. The garden is absolutely full of gormless young birds being fed. The nesting material I put up is torn to shreds, so there's nest-building everywhere.

I've been to the garden centre and bought some lettuces and a few wild currant bushes for the butterflies and hummingbirds. I'll put the currants on the south slope that fronts the water, so we can be entertained when we have a fire on the beach.


There's someone in my head, but it's not me.
