Jury duty. The scariest thing that can happen to a person this side of a visit to the DMV.

The Twitter hashtag #GetOutOfJuryDutyIn4Words was trending on Friday, with people chiming in with the four words you can say to avoid sitting through a trial.

So, the next time you get summoned to court to appear on a jury, be wise and remember these as a way to get out of serving. Of course, there's always the chance the judge will not be amused and you'll be found in contempt, but, hey, isn't that a risk you're willing to take?
