I was summoned for Jury Service. I was ready to go get an excuse from my Doctor because of my Chemo treatments. I happened to look on the back of the summons and there is a number you can call if you have a problem serving. I called the number and there is a long list of reasons you cannot serve. The first one is...if you are over seventy....I fit into that category....then, if you are a teacher, doctor, lawyer, or if you have served within the last two years. (and a lot more I can't remember) I had to leave a message telling them my excuse. Here is the message I left.... My name is Clara Melvin, I live at S------ G------ R-, Bluff City, TN. I have an excuse for not appearing for jury service....in fact, I have more than ONE excuse. 1..I am over seventy. 2..I am taking chemo for breast cancer. 3.. My husband is an invalid. 4..My son has a broken leg. 5..I have served within the last two years. If you need any more excuses, please call me at this number. Thank You, Have a good day!
I bet I won't have to go.....what do you think?
