*promotion?

so, after dealing with a nearly 2million dollar problem at work that finally got resolved, I am faced with a new job opportunity handed to me on a silver platter. on friday the super big boss man pulled about 10 of my colegues and me into a room and pitched a new postion that is opening in management. it will be a 1.5-2 year position over 10 employees in a part of the building I've never been. after talking about it with one of my friends at work I think i'm going to drop my name in the hat. the only other guy I know of that will go for the postiion will probalby actually read this blog, so to the C-man I say "may the best man win" =)

heres my problem. I got bumped from jury duty last week to having to call this week. I called friday night to find out that i have to go to jury duty on monday, the very day I need to grease the wheels at work to get the new job, so the ol' C-man just may beat me out! argg.......

I'm thinking of telling the judge I'm in favor of the death penalty for jay walking so they will drop me. any other ideas on how to get out of this? I need em quick as monday is the big day.

Carry way too much "dangerous/questionable" materials with you through the metal detectors at the court house (multiple knives, screwdrivers, household substances, etc.)

oh, or act like you're really hard of hearing. Talk really loud, and say "what?" to everything someone says to you, like you really didn't hear them...

or just act retarded.

(hold on, I'll come up with better ideas :))
