If you are an American citizen, then it is probable that you have experienced the terrible anxiety you feel when you find in the mail the letter in which you are called to serve jury duty. This anxiety comes from not wanting to do it and trying to make up some excuse to get out of it. getting out of jury duty is not an easy task and we recommend you to do it for the right reasons.
Consider that it is a right of yours to be able to decide on a trial. If you think about it this way, then you will understand that it is a huge responsibility to be there. The famous comedian, George Carlin, once said that there is no need to lie in order to avoid jury duty. He said that by saying the truth to the judge you would be free. He said that you just need to tell him that you are an amazing lie detector and you will find the criminal right away. According to Carlin, you will get out of jury duty right away.
The line from Carlin is funny because it is true: You don’t need to lie. You can just explain your lack of interest to the judge.
