Got called for jury duty

I just recieved notification in the mail that I have been called for jury duty! I am not going no way no how!

I am going to ask Dr. Barry to write me a note to excuse me on the grounds of being blind and having mental health difficulties. I know she won’t mind writing me a note.

The trial I was to serve on is on the 20th of October. There is no way I can serve on a jury. That would be far to stressful and triggery to me.

I will just bring the letter in to dr. Barry next week and she can help me deal with it.

Frances already helped me to fill out the form giving the reasons why I cant do it. But now I need evidence like a letter to back up the reasons that I gave.

Talk about stress! I didnt need this today!

  1. I have somehow managed never to be called but I’m pretty sure I would hate it.
    I’m sure you won’t need to do it 🙂 But just the stress of getting the letter must be very high, I know I would be freaked out.

  2. I get called for jury duty every few years. When I worked full-time I didn’t want to miss work, but was never selected. Since I’ve retired on disability, I’ve kind of wanted to be selected for a new experience. It doesn’t matter, every time I go in for selection I get dismissed. I’ve been told that’s because I have STEM degree (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) or that it’s because I ride a motorcycle. They have always asked about both of those things. I think they want to avoid jurors with a STEM mindset, and I’ve been told that they don’t like motorcyclists, as we have strong opinions on personal responsibility. It seems weird, but they ask, and I’ve been told that’s why.
