After getting a call up last month for jury service at Cupar Sheriff Court starting on Wednesday 3 June, I wrote a polite letter asking to be excused as the pittance they pay to cover loss of earnings would barely start to cover my contracting daily rate.

Unfortunately they replied to say that was not sufficient grounds for excusal.

So I prepared to lose one or more (indefinite, could be many) working days, including arranging to work today to make up for lost time. And then I got a letter this morning telling me that the sitting will not proceed and that my attendance is not now required, but that I will be liable to be recalled on a future occasion. They added "I apologise for any inconvenience this matter may have caused you."

A good result, in that I don't have to go to court and lose money in doing so, but annoying in the hassle and worry it has caused me. And it will start again when they get around to calling me in the future. And altogether inconvenient.
