I haven't decided if I want to attempt to serve on the jury or make an effort to get pinged by the defense lawyer yet.
On the one hand, it's a pretty unique civic experience that, if selected, I take very seriously.
But on the other hand, if I get picked to serve I'll end up having to spend at least a week or two conversating with (and pretending to like) my fellow jurors which, given my location, will most likely consist of Bible thumping conservative rednecks who think that Obama is the antichrist and abortion is murder.
Furthermore - The compensation. 30 bucks a day? Really? I mean, I don't expect them to pay me what my actual job pays me, but couldn't they at least make it minimum wage, FFS?
