But here’s the thing: I sort of felt like maybe I shouldn’t write a letter to get out of it. It’s part of the deal, right? Part of my civic responsibility. And while I am my child’s primary caregiver, except for those afternoons the grandmas have her, I know I can arrange for it if and when there’s a trial this month (we’re “on call” all month here in our county – you call on Monday and find out if there’s duty on Friday and the following Monday).
Just who do I think I’m being an example to? My daughter is far too young to notice that
It’s my first time doing jury duty, and I can’t imagine that it’s so bad. Yeah, it’s an inconvenience. But it is my civic responsibility, right? Right?
