Uh oh, I've been hit.
Previous experiences with this type thing were:
- Call the night before to a pre-recorded message. It will say whether to show up or forget about it. I've had several of each.
- Showing up. Sometimes I've sat in a waiting room for several hours with the jury pool, then got dismissed. Take plenty to read and a full phone battery as seats near power outlets are fought over. Two TV's in the waiting room will be roaring away on horrible daytime programming, and people will shout things at the screen.
- One time I made it all the way to the final cut in the courtroom, then got eliminated. I like to think it was because I look competent.
