Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments?

Overheard:

Frick: Frack, I am ig-a-noring you.

_____________________________________________________

I think I am the luckiest person in the world.

I have been called for jury duty again.

I was summoned in:

1998 during my first year of teaching (excused)

2000 during our wedding week (excused)

2002 during state mandated testing (a certified teacher must give these tests–excused)

2004 during my pregnancy with Frick  (not picked for panel)

2005 (picked for panel)

2006 during the week of my due date with Frack (excused)

2007 (Federal Grand Jury–picked for panel)

and now

Feb. 2009

That’s 8 times in  roughly 15 years.  It’s all randomly done, so you can see that I must REALLY  be lucky.

**Running out the door to the gas station to get my lotto ticket.**

    Seriously…go buy that ticket!

    Here in MA, we can only be called every 3 years. I think I’ve gone 3 times and haven’t had to “serve” any of the times, thank goodness! They tried to get me before the 3 years was up one year! lol

    Wow! That’s alot. I think I’ve only been called once and it was for a county I didn’t even live in, so I was excused.

    Good luck with the lottery, it sounds like you’ve got a great chance 😉

    I’m knocking on wood b/c I think I’ve only been ‘tagged’ for jury duty once and I was nursing so was excused. I think you should go get the lotto ticket now.

    Oddly enough, the link you left on Mr.Linky led to a November post of yours! Isn’t that weird? I added the right one and am working on getting rid of the wrong one.

    No jury duty for me yet, though I was excused once. I think it would be very interesting, though preparing for a sub would STINK!!

    My Dh and I have the same thing – I’ve been called four times (one federal, seated once) and he’s been called never.

    Call me crazy but I’ve always wanted to serve on jury duty. Send me some of yours! I’ve been called ZERO times. On the other hands, eight times is crazy!

    My mother has the same issue except only once has she been excused while my step-dad is dying to get picked and hasn’t.

    Oh my goodness you’re right you should totally take up the lottery or apply for a place on gameshows.

    Clearly you’re getting my share of jury duty.

    Oh my gosh, what a pain! Tell them you’re jury-phobic!

    Heh.

    I was called twice and was able to get out of it both times. I don’t mind doing my civic duty, it was driving downtown that was anxiety inducing! Now I live in a smaller town/county and it should be much better.

    Ha – my mom and I were just talking about this same thing. She was called again last week and always seems to get called – I have never been called….

    This is too funny! How can one person be summoned so often?! Funny that we were next to each other at SITS roll call today too?!
