I received a notice a few weeks ago that I had been selected for jury duty starting today. I rearranged my work schedule so that I could work from home this morning and then work a full day on Friday. I dutifully called the hotline over the weekend to make sure that I still had to serve and the answering machine message said that all trials for Monday were still scheduled but that I needed to call again after 10:30 today.
I just got off the phone, and all the trials have been cleared off the calendar today. I’m highly annoyed because I was supposed to do some volunteer work on Friday afternoon that I had to cancel because of the switch in work schedule. Also, I have discovered that there is a reason that I don’t work from home on Monday mornings. It’s been pretty hectic.
And the bonus–I am still on call and will probably see another summons in the next month or so. And I’ll get to do this all over again.
On the plus side, I did not reschedule my Wednesday morning midwife appointment and the dreaded GD test. So that’s still on.
