Turns out it was for grand jury duty to send corrupt drug squad cops to trial for murder.

I had no problem getting out of it, because I am busy saving the world.

edit, this one:https://www.houstonchronicle.com/ne...can-park-drug-raid-indict-goines-15448342.php
Sounds bloody awful. Better to be out saving the world than that crap.

It would only be worth it for a juicy Ted Bundy type case where you dine off it for years and have satisfaction that you played a small part in bringing justice to the perp. Small time corruption, bad cops and boy/girl fights is not for men on a mission elsewhere.

I would say I was in witness protection and you couldn't risk it, in the likelihood it was a trial of one of your old associates who might recognize you.
It would be obvious that you are a lying moron and if i was the judge i’d hold you in contempt of the court. A person in witness protection would pass off any jury request to their handler who would deal with it without the need for you to go to court. Any one actually in witness Protection that would show up for jury duty is a moron. The prosecutor or judge would be aware of this and at the minimum require some sort of official confirmation.

It wasn't meant to be taken literally. Only the spirit of avoiding jury duty.

But I do continue to enjoy you scouring over my posts for an angle to exploit with your little pack of poodles.

Best way to avoid jury duty is to wear an enormous pocket handkerchief, an hermes tie and gucci horse bit loafers and of course have a law degree.

Lost a major client partner today.
As much as it hurts, it is all part of business. You win and lose and then get some of them back.

We have a very big French behemoth rival that suddenly cuts into business streams and you get kicked out and then 12-18 months down the line you find they stormed in with much higher rates beyond competitiveness and then didn't deliver and you're back in. But the mystery remains how did they do it? Because everyone says they didn't want them and it was like you were working for them from day one. And they shake their heads and cringe. Well, because they owned certain procurement people and higher management in your organisation.

It really pisses me off. Because it's always the same story, a certain public school accented Brit who speaks the lingo of higher management and lulls them into a trap with utter, yet plausible BS. He's now gone to the Italians working some schmutter on bespoke digital platforms that you can get for free in an App store. Hopefully that will be his downfall.

found out one of my slighly elderly family members thought they were texting anderson cooper from cnn on whatsapp. this imposter had convinced said family member to send him $500 via a cryptocurrency app in exchange for a box of free goodies from the anderson cooper show. thankfully i was able to stop it before it went through.

There are so many alarm bells in that story I am shocked it almost went through.

We get the Indian/Pakistani Microsoft scams over here. All comes from a Norwegian number.

I knew it was a bit fishy when they said "It's because of all the games you play....'', now if they had said all the porn you've been watching...

i know. they're lonely and legitimately thought that this famous person was their 'friend'. they'd been talking to them on whatsapp for weeks now apparently.

im in retail stores that deal with money transfers quite often and i see people buying itunes and google play gift cards for these scams constantly. its very common with the elderly.

I am not going through another full fucking quarantine.
Essential travel only? Piss off - I'm essential.

Of course they announce recommending closure of bars, indoor dining, etc. whilst I'm at a bar.

Ringing a restaurant in a village that closes at 2000. It's 1915 and your host desk can't pick up the phone? Who the bloody hell are you seating?

Made my first cup of coffee for the morning. Still half asleep, but after about six gulps I realized the milk (freshly opened) was off. Three more cups with a new milk carton, but I still have that rancid taste in my head/mouth.

No different than getting grass juice for a cleansing.
