Contempt of court.

Do I go to jail or pay a fine or what?

The words "contempt of court" scared me so I just called down there. They said no problem they'll just make sure they send me another notice for jury duty again. But they added "just make sure you don't forget that one too" implying that the next time I forget they won't let me off that easy.

Hint.........Turn the form over and print that you have some type of condition that precludes you from attending. Simple stuff will work, sore back, Pimple on ass, it is ok to be creative. I have never had them question it. BTW I am now age exempt.

Trust me folks You dont want me on a Jury..........I

The defense doesn't want me on a jury either. I believe they're all guilty.

In all likelihood Bob, not a damn thing. My wife forgot to show up about 2 years ago and she never heard anything from ole Ernie Lee's Office.

They will give you a teeshirt that says, "I am a contemptible bastard," you will have to wear it throughout the trial.

Maybe you can be a jurer on your own contempt of court trial.

Now we're talkin. I was looking forward to free lunches cause when I was a juror about 20 years ago they bought us lunch at Seville Quarter. If they're also giving out free t-shirts that's even better.
If they give out enough freebies I may go soft and not make the dude be guilty.

I don't understand why so many people try to dodge jury duty. I've never served on a jury but have been called numerous times. I've never found it unpleasant, I brought a good book to read while waiting and have always forgotten to cash their checks.

Were I on trial, I'd hate for many of you to be on the jury knowing how much you would hate being on the jury.

So many folks who want to escape a citizen duty to our country but want people who can't even identify who they are, to be able to vote.

Skipping jury duty can get you in trouble, of sorts. Every few years, they decide to make an example of those who ignore jury summons. They will round up a bunch of folks who skipped jury duty and haul them before a judge to get their ears ripped off, usually individually--the judge then makes them pay a small fine.

You should probably call the Clerk's office and confess to them about your no-show, and make sure no warrant or note has been placed in your file.

Bob,
I don't want to scare you but I had a friend who missed jury duty and went to the courthouse to appologize. That was over a year ago and I haven't seen him since. I feed his dog every day and water his lawn. I hope he returns soon.

I'm really gonna miss you Bob. Can I have your parking spot while you're gone?

Now I did not see anything about Bob saying that he hates jury duty, he said he forgot, big difference.

He might be talking to me. I hate jury duty and going to court. Color me a total Ass Hole when it comes to court related crap. I have always dodged the shit and have never served or even went down to the court house for jury duty. The Army got enough of my damn time. My "Civic Duty" ticket is paid up. Sorry folks, but I aint doing no more.

Were you drafted in to the Army?

Edit:

I'm asking because if you were drafted, I can see how one might think their obligation or privilage of being a US citizen is paid. I don't agree with it, but I understand how some might.
If you volunteered, that's a different story.
But someone who never served and still shruggs off their responsability of being a US citizen is a whole different story.
How about we take away your privilage to vote and your privilage to be on a jury while we're at it. How does that feel?

Memorize the correct spelling and you'll feel smarter.

Bob made a post today at 7:55 am. 5 minutes before his obligation as a US citizen went unfulfilled. Maybe he qualifies for that internet disability that is now available. It's on another link.

Ghandi, Hallmarkgrad is a good man and he served his country honorably. To suggest his military service was anything less than honorable is despicable.

I don't give a damn if he enrolled in a different service after receiving a draft notice. He served his country... give it a rest.

I dont know how they can hold you in contempt anyway. They dont send those notifications by certified mail so who is to say that you ever even got the damn thing? My kids get the mail out of the box and strew that shit everywhere before I can get to it. Glad I dont have to pay the bills.

Not many men can claim that their debt to America is paid in full. He did and it's a disgrace of him to say it while he's still breathing. Too many really did pay the ultimate price and died doing it. Everyone of them would rather be here to stand jury duty than be in a box in the ground. Honor those who deserve it. Not draft dodgers and jury shruggers.
