    Me too! I’ve only owned a home (at Yale Steam Laundry) since the late spring, and I’ve already got petit jury duty. Is there such a shortage of viable candidates tbat they have to pick the two of us already? I didn’t even get the Welcome Wagon yet!

    It’s the one thing this city is very efficient with. I served (but was not picked) last week and my wife served on a two week long criminal trial in October. It’s an interesting experience. I will apparently be called up again in exactly two years to the month. Bring a good book, a laptop, and a lot of patients.

    Yes, they put you to work every two years on the date. They don’t mess around, but I still have yet to be selected as a juror yet.

    Fortunately I got excused since they sent my notice a little too early–it was more like 10 months after I last served. Let’s hope they forget in a couple of months and I don’t get another notice for 2 more years!

    And don’t forget Grand Jury… six weeks @ five days/week, 9-5. Great vacation from work.

    Let’s hope I never ever get grand jury. I read up on my company’s policies and they say they only pay for two weeks of jury duty.
