Anyone ever been summoned to federal jury duty? First time for me. I like the system compared to the lower courts. Call in the evening before to see if they need you vs. show up and sit around all day praying they don't. I think a good tip might be NOT to call in right after 6pm as thay ask, but an hour+ later. I did that last night after the game and the recording said to call back tonight. Success! We'll see if this method works as the week goes on.

Any other tips? I have too many meetings I really can't miss this week to be Mr. Civic Duty.
