*sigh*.

I have a letter for "NOTICE OF POTENTIAL JURY DUTY". Oh the joy. I was selected for jury duty 3 years ago, and it was a waste of time, I turned up, wasn't picked and told to go home. Joy.
And it's in Glasgow, despite me moving to Edinburgh on the 12th of Feb, so I'll have to phone up tomorrow and go "Oi, I won't be living in Glasgow soon" - I tried that now, but they're only open 9-5. More joy.

And I have postal spam from Littlewoods (Google it if you don't know what it is). So I've written "DECEASED" across all of the spam, and am posting it back in the pre-paid envelope.
It worked with personalised number plate applications (Which I got before I had even started learning to drive), and Virgin credit card applications.

In other news, I'm not planning on getting part 3 of my tutorial done this week (Although I may start it), but I will try to get part 1 edited. I noticed when I was writing part 2 that I completely missed out handling window messages - I mention the message pump, but not the window procedure or how the wrapping of a HWND and a class works.

Anyhoo, I go watch The Simpsons now...

Seriously dude, whatever you do, don't fuck about with the jury duty stuff. They'll have you for contempt of court and that's generally pretty nasty.

Write to them calmly and professionally with your reasons. Chances are they'll tell you to fuck off and remind you what the law is, but hey.

Oh yeah, and Littlewoods have actually stopped me in the street before asking me for my address to send me that stuff. Load of shite.

Yeah, I know it's a very bad idea to screw around with the jury duty crap. I've phoned up and they said just put Edinburgh as my address on the contact details sheet, and they'll remove me from their list.

And the littlewoods spam has gone back in the post now.

Better yet - in casual conversation with them, use a few racist words. Then, if they ask if you are racist, say "No, I hate everybody equally".

I'll have to remember the "deceased" thing if I start getting junk mail (although moving a few times a year seems to help that...)
