You have to show up at the place on that date. When you get there, you can tell them you can't serve because you can't afford to miss work, or whatever reason you want to give them. You can postpone it up to two times.

 

Also, they might ask you a bunch of questions about your beliefs, weeding out those who might have biased opinions. You can use that to get them to dismiss you.

i got called in for next week. all im going to tell them is i cant afford to miss however many days of work because i wouldnt be able to pay rent. this way if they try to reschedule i can use the same excuse.

 

they usually dont use the younger crowd unless absolutely necessary, or so i hear.

i got called twice in 3 months...the first time i didn't get selected and the second time they didn't call my "alternate" group so i didn't actually have to go in for the selection process.

 

those notices blow.

Don't be such a pussy and just do it. Last time I went I was selected first, had to listen to some lame DUI excuse for two hours, took 10 minutes to decide the bitch was guilty and was out before 2 o'clock. Oh, and was up 13 bucks.
