> everyone tries to get out of jury duty as much as they can.

Perhaps it's the fact that I live in a smaller city, but literally no one I know had tried to get out off jury duty, except one friends in the last months of her pregnancy when she had preeclampsia and was ordered by the doctor to rest (so a legitimate reason).

One advantage of this is I get to hear all kinds of great stories about various cases (including a murder, in one case).
