I have to admit that I am conflicted. I want to do my part for our legal system as others have done for me in my past. I have done this in the past and I was shocked about who they would consider a "jury of my peers".
I am currently on call for jury duty this week and it couldn't come at a worse time personally and professionally. My parents are in visiting from Seattle, my work load is overwhelming (100% commission so it WILL negatively impact me if selected) and I leave for a two week vacation in two weeks.
I am conflicted as to what to do if I am called in. Do I do my duty to my country or do I utilize one of the many tricks people share about getting out of jury duty? It is too late to postpone my service as it has to be done before the week you are on call.
