    Because I just got a letter through the door saying I had been picked for potential jury service...

    Is the minimum age 18? If so, they really didn't hang about choosing my name 'at random'. I only turned 18 yesterday!

    Yes, 18.
    They're funny at their random choosings. It was always said to me "you're statistically unlikely to get jury duty. So enjoy this rare opportunity to see legal proceedings and make a difference!"

    Two weeks after I'd finished a month-and-a-half stint, I got another summons.

    Yeah I got mine through just after my 18th birthday as well (a long time ago now).

    Did mine four years ago, actually enjoyed it... Bit intense though, had a week long trial the second week for death by dangerous driving. The only one in the first week was a guy who was up for stealing a mountain bike and five pounds in cash, changed his plea the second he saw my steely glare.

    I'm ineligible for jury duty so I will never have the pleasure.
