Bratty McBratFace Ghosts Jury Duty
So awhile back a jury summons came in the mail for Bratty McBratFace (SD24). I know SO told her about this because he even gave her the summons at our brunch just before Thanksgiving. Bratty made some noise about wanting to serve on a jury since she had 'opinions'. Nutter GF chimed in with the sage advice to tell them she is a student (how about just change your address?).
In our county students are not excused from a jury summons but they can reschedule to serve during a break. Of course that assumes they still reside in the county which Bratty doesn't. So instead of changing her address I guess she decided to ignore it.
In our county if someone fails to show up for jury duty the first time they get automatically rescheduled for a future date 90 days away. They get sent an 'update notice' which is what came in the mail yesterday. If Bratty ignores that then they could get a fine up to $1,500.
I was reading the notice as we were sorting through the mail yesterday and SO (who seemed embarrassed) told me 'well that's none of your business'. I told him I agreed it was none of my business which is why these notices should NOT be coming to my home. And if they DO come to my home - then they become my business by default. So I happily read away. If a damn 24 year old wants privacy then they should have mail sent to where they live, not their parents house.
I also told SO if another notice came in I was responding online myself with the change of address. So we'll see if Bratty gets it done or not!
