I forgot about jury duty today -- how badly am I screwed?

    I forgot to call last night to see if I needed to be on jury duty today. I don't know whether I was on the list of those who were supposed to be in today. I don't know if I'm in contempt for court or what. I don't know a lot right now, I'm afraid. Am I completely fucked, like looking at jail time or anything? Did I just fuck my life up for good with a criminal record? I'm starting to think this might be it for me -- is it?

    Well, the prisons are overcrowded with guys who blew off jury duty. The good news is you're higher than the child molesters in the prison pecking order.

    Better yet...We'll bake you a cake with a file in it.

    I would call whatever number you forgot to call before, to see whether your number was among those that were supposed to show. If not, you're fine.

    That's where I would start. Good luck, man.

    Just make sure you knock the shit out of someone your first day in the yard. Or else everyone is going to think they can take your manhood.

    Already did that, and they've changed the message to Friday's jury duty list -- and apparently nobody has to go to jury duty tomorrow. I'm hoping that's what happened today. Otherwise ... hell, maybe I'm overreacting, but ... hell.

    Also, while the cake with a file in it might be a good idea, I'd probably eat the fucking thing without realizing it.

    You're probably helped by the fact that the cops didn't show up at your place already today to take you to court.

    I'm imagining what the inmates are going to do when you tell them what you're in for ... it's not pretty, MM.

    Not pretty at all.

    Man, I think Mystery_Meat will be Dead_Meat in the pound-em-in-the-ass state pen he'll be in.

    If you go to jail, you'll find out a new meaning of the phrase: Hell in a Cell!
