I received a slip in the mail that says there is a certified letter for me at the post office.

The info about the sender was just initials. From the initials I believe that it is from the county.

Now what?

More on this:

About six months ago I received a questionnaire for possible jury duty. I filled it out and returned it. I haven't heard back from them.

jury duty is fun interesting if you get a good case
Link Posted: 8/14/2005 9:41:43 PM EDT
I've never gotten a jury duty letter that was certified.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

...or show up on your doorstep.

If it isn't face-to-face, it can safely be ignored.

Make sure all your bills are paid. I managed to miss a payment on my storage locker, and a few months later I got a certified letter saying "if you haven't made your account current by xxx date, we will auction the contents of xxx storage locker and bill you for blah blah blah". (I had paid the subsequent months, I had simply been out of town most of the month in question and the payment slipped my mind.)

So I paid up, all was well. Glad I didn't ignore the certified letter!

Friend of mine at work got a certified letter from the county. No one has seen him since.

Just kidding. Actually it was letting him know there was a public hearing about some community project near his house.

Is there a tracking number on the notice? it will at least say what city it was mailed from.

A certified letter once came for me from the airport post office.

I let it into my house. It plugged up my toilet within three days and kicked my dog.

Now I say: Down! Down! Ceritified Mail! Down!

I once got a certified letter with a check from a client worth a nice chunk of change... So think good things, maybe some dying millionare just sent you a huge check.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 5:54:13 AM EDT

now what?



Uh, pick it up.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 5:56:48 AM EDT
see who's it from, if you dont want to receive it after that you can refuse it. I refused TOS violations from my ISP 3 or 4 times after I violated TOS

Jury duty.

Ignoring the letter won't make it go away

A subpoena does not have to be face to face 6 years ago a lawyer showed up at my house and requested to speak with me, my parents were over and I was at work It was delivered to them to
hand over to me but it does not have to be given specifically to the recipient.


p.s. I was kinda expecting it just hopeing to avoid it by the "if they dont get ME it doesnt count"
I was wrong not to mention I got a parking ticket while at the court house and no one could clear that up luckily here its only $2.00 so I paid it and never did get my check from the city
for going which wasnt much my neighbor was served a subpoena for the same incident and only got
$18 the money I lost from missing work was over $1200 wtf???

The noun run-on sentence has one meaning:

Meaning #1: an ungrammatical sentence in which two or more independent clauses are conjoined without a conjunction

You can go to the post office and ask them for the sender's address before you sign to pick it up.

Nothing good can come from this.

Maybe it's a check from Publishers Clearing House?

I heard that ever since Ed McMahon died they haven't ben able to find a suitable replacement so now all the checks go out certified mail.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 10:17:47 AM EDT
I don't think Ed McMahon is dead.

If it's the IRS seeking to audit you and seize and sell your liquid assets, you may want to send me all your guns for safe keeping.

I guess so - he was just signed to do work on The Alf Show on TVLand.

He's still alive.

I had the same thing once. I went home early one day and found out it was from a credit card company. They wanted to tell me about their new offer at 21.99%. i was so mad I wasted my time.

Maybe in Texas, but not everyplace. Then again in a police state like Texas you have vehicle inspections we free citizens in CA don't have.

I picked up the letter. I have jury duty.

I don't know why they sent it certified mail, and I don't know why the return address is the sheriff's department instead of the court, but there you go.

Well, crap... that's no fun. Let us know when you get the one next week demanding child support payments from your days of youthfun inhibition.

If you go to claim it you can always refuse to accept the letter when you see who it is from. Or, just ignore the notices and the letter will go back unclaimed.

Pick up the letter, then drawn down on it.
