happy anniversary to neal and sonia
we do not fucking torture

what would [fill in name of your favorite mentor] do?

OK, most of this is just me being lame. I thought I had jury duty tomorrow, and earlier today I checked to see if they'd posted the instructions, hoping of course that they would tell me I didn't need to show up. When I looked at my paperwork, I realized I was supposed to go today. Well, too late for that. I read the "I fucked up" instructions and called them on the phone as directed. After being on hold for 20 minutes, I got a man who said I could reschedule for tomorrow at 8:30. Since I expected to go then anyway, I said fine.

Something occurred to me later in the day, but I didn't want to sit on hold for another 20 minutes, so I kept my thoughts to myself. I shouldn't have. Just after 5:00, I went online to see what the reporting instructions were:

The following notice is for jurors summoned for 04/22/2009.

No jurors are needed for the 8:30 AM roll call.

Further instructions said to call between 11 and 12 tomorrow to see if you'd be needed.

So, legal experts ... am I supposed to show up tomorrow at 8:30, or not? The guy on the phone didn't say anything other than "we'll reschedule you for 8:30 tomorrow." I was too lazy to call back and ask if I was part of the next day's pool, or in some special "I fucked up" category. And now I know that you don't need to show up for 8:30 roll call if you were summoned for 4/22.

What should I do? I'm leaning towards staying home in the morning and calling at 11:00.
