Jury Selection

I have been summoned to court tomorrow to appear for jury selection. I really hope I am not picked. I know, my civic duty and all, but I cannot afford to take much time off from work. I think people who serve on a jury get a small stipend but I doubt it the amount would be enough to compensate for the loss of income.

Also, I really don’t want the responsibility of having to sift through conflicting testimonies to decide if someone is guilty or innocent, or who is in the wrong in a civil case. I’m not very good at that sort of thing. I am not very good at mediating disputes between my children and would have no idea how to determine if complete strangers are lying.
