I probably wouldn’t skip out on jury duty haha but yea they had free wi-fi in the waiting room at least. They even had a pretty cool quiet room where everyone was in there working – it was small but cozy. They ended up letting about half the people go early but the other half got called to court rooms. I’m sure only a small percentage ended up serving so let me know how it goes.

Hey man–I know I haven’t commented in a while. But I was just searching for “what happens if I don’t show up for jury duty san diego” and your G+ photo popped up on the 2nd or 3rd page of search results!

Anyhow, I really want to do jury duty badly. I’ve shown up in Texas but was not selected.

Now I live in San Diego as well, but I work remotely for my employer, hourly, and jury duty is not covered.

I sent my summons excuse response with a couple letters attached. Haven’t heard of me being excused.

So the question is–do I skip jury duty? Risk getting fined or going to jail hahaha?

OR–you mention you were on the internet there…I would be surprised if the courthouse provided free wifi. Or is that the case??

Thanks!
Todd

But since my employer paid for it, it was pretty awesome and I definitely took advantage of my time there.

Some unfortunate members can lose thousands performing this annual obligation.

If you’re going to be forced into doing jury duty for a day, why not make the most of it? Don’t come unprepared and sit there on your phone looking at facebook for the whole day, that’s probably why people think jury duty sucks.

You get to sit in a quiet room for 4-6 hours, there are a million things you could do to improve upon your human capital. Read a book, study a foreign language, etc. and there are plenty of ways to make money online if you so choose.

Not everyone makes money from their computer. Do you really not realize this, or do you just fancy being a braggart?

Yea I think at this point in my life jury duty is a good thing, but I don’t think I’ll say the same thing in 5-10 years when I have kids and a ton of other stuff going on.

So, if my children were very small, they would be taken care of.

Fortunately, the judge actually asked if there were mothers of school age children who did not have another source of care. We were dismissed along with the one person who cared for a disabled spouse. While I’d covered that first day, the jury I was called for was slated to last for up to two weeks. It would have been impossible for me to cover that period of time.

If you get called for a one day trial, no biggy. The problem is with that slim chance your name is called for a long trial.

I’d probably buy a refundable airline ticket or something like that and make up some story so I could get out of it. 🙂
