I'm all about doing one's civic duty, but....grrrr

I got a letter this week informing me that I am up for jury duty. Aside from the general sort of "uhoh" feeling, I was kinda excited, because it's my first time and I've always been interested in the whole idea of how they do juries.

This was all before I talked to my supervisor and discovered that my work does NOT PAY for days spent on jury duty. Geez. I don't suppose a lot of places do, but still, why not, people? It's the price of living in America, to serve the law like this, and to allow your employees to do the same.

So I guess if I do get called, I'll just be out however-many days of pay.

Or have to take vacation.
