    11 Feelings We All Have When We're Summed For Jury Duty

    The patriotic duty we all dread to receive.

    1. Surprise. / Via

    What is this letter? Jury summons? But I DIDN'T commit a crime!

    2. Fear. / Via

    There are no exemptions? What does that mean? What if my boss says I have to come in anyways? What about the kids? But I just started a job! I CAN'T DO THIS!

    3. Judgement.


    "Everyone who is qualified must serve." Maybe I'm not qualified? What does that mean? Why should America JUDGE ME?

    4. Relief. / Via

    "All applications for postponement…" I can postpone?! This day has just gotten better - no jury duty for me!

    5. Anxiety / Via

    Already postponed? Don't have a good reason not to? You're going to have to do jury duty? Yeah, it happens to the best of us.

    6. Acceptance. / Via

    Jury Duty can be fun! Maybe I won't have to serve. Maybe I'll get a "fun" case! Maybe I'll break my leg just in time!

    7. Brainstorming. / Via

    I can use a medical excuse to get out of jury duty? Is a really bad cough good enough? Do I know someone I could get the flu from? What does WebMD say is a really bad disease to have?

    8. Acceptance (again). / Via

    It's alright. I'm going to do it. It's going to be ALL RIGHT. So over the entire process already.

    9. Excitement. / Via

    I wonder what it's going to be like. At least I get paid from the government while I participate in my civic duty! Silver lining right?

    10. Resentment. / Via

    What a great place America is RIGHT? I get to waste a day to just sit in a courtroom waiting for my number to be called. Thanks America.

    11. Pride. / Via

    Actually, thanks America. Glad to be able to do such a service to my country and be a part of a jury of peers for someone...or something. Thanks for summoning me America!
