The system we have here is so fucked up. For one thing the summons came in Sep for the month of Nov. Then you have to call a recording to find out you have to call again tomorrow, only to find out you have to call again the next day and so on until you are instructed to report. I checked in on Thursday, Friday, Monday and Tuesday, but forgot to check in on Wednesday! Today I noticed the summons again (which I am amazed I was able to keep track of for over a freaking month) and thought oh shit. So I checked in a little after 12:00 today and found out I was supposed to have reported at 8:00 this morning.
I really tried to keep up, I had every intention of going in.
So what is the process like in your area?
