25. I knew someone who was in that situation
She was a juror on the Oakland Riders trail, if that had any meaning to you. The jurors were given Fridays off to do their work. Her volunteer efforts sank like a stone, of course, and she came out of the experience hating the system, calling it all bullshit (the maneuvering of both sides, by the way). YMMV.
