There Is Only One Thing We Say to Jury Duty

Jury duty.  How terrifying!  I was scheduled to serve today, and like a fool I waited until Friday to go online to seek a postponement.  Sure enough, the juror website told me I couldn't get a postponement on such short notice.

At 4 A.M., my brain noticed the 1-800 number on the summons, and so I dialed it and selected a new service date after following the voice prompt. But in the back of my mind I knew it couldn't be that easy.

So at 9:00 A.M., I went to Centre Street and took a detour into Room 139, and the woman sitting at the desk had no problem granting me a postponement right on the spot!  She also noted that my 4 A.M. "request" hadn't entered into the system yet.
