The last thing anyone wants to see in their mailbox is a jury summons. If you're 7 months pregnant, it's the very last thing. I called today to see about getting out of it and learned something interesting after a brief phone call that went something like this:
Me: Hi, I'll be 8 months pregnant at the time I'm supposed to serve, how do I postpone?
Lady: Well, when are you due?
Me: August 22nd.
Lady: I can give you a postponement until August 30th.
Me: (something along the lines of WTF I don't want to leave my newborn yada yada yada)
Lady: Let me finish.
Me: Sorry, it's my first and I'm a psycho.
Lady: Oh no, that's ok. I remember my first. You can then submit request to be excused completely since you'll be a breast-feeding mother.
So basically, they don't care if you're a huge pregnant lady, they just care if you're lactating. How's about that?
