Do your jury duty.

Manhattan Criminal Court:
The boring introductory speech takes about 45 minutes, and should begin relatively on time. Therefore, coming 45 minutes late is no big deal.

If you have a deferment, don't waster your time at the criminal court. Go straight to 60 Centre Street room 139. The line can get busy, so try to come at a good time.

Someone I know is a state employee. Gets full salary on jury duty, plus the $40 a day, no days deducted from work.
He got called up for a grand jury, for every Thursday of the year. He did it for a half year, every Thursday, started at 10 usually ended around 2-3. He's one of the only guys who got jury duty who loved it.
I'm not who you think I am.

There are always volunteers in the pool.

I am upset for wasting my time on jury duty. I did not want to be there but could not leave, it felt like my freedom of movement was violated. And of course one has to listen to all the goverment propaganda (USA! USA! USA!) that is repeated over and over brainwashing nationalistic superiority using patriotism (a strong feeling, USA! USA! USA!) to justify the waste of time and violation of freedom of movement.

When I got called to the interview, I said that only criminals run from the police, the lawyer, an old man named Goldman, argued that maybe the police had arrested the wrong man, entirely possible!
Next I replied that I believe that the police know what they’re doing, and that was that, dismissed.

Old times who came over from Europe used to make a kiddush when they became US citizens.  ;) I assume you saved yourself a kiddush lol
In other countries, you would have to serve in the army.

It should. Make sure you have documentation from before you were summoned.

...And that the travel is non-refundable. At least IME.

Jury Duty: A time with nothing to do but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach without a view and an ocean breeze.
