You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

Says the Captain...

*Ah ____! A random drug test?!*

If you are not there by Friday, or refuse, you will be terminated.

Gee... just what I needed to add to my things to do this week in preperation for hubby's surgery.

I swear, I can't get a break! Don't get me wrong, I know it has to be done but what bad timing for me! Ugh...

Uh Oh! Janie's got her gun!

Re: You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

Re: You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

If a random drug test is a problem, then it should be. Sorry for your recent troubles but I don't understand why a drug test would be a problem.

Re: You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

seems she is just saying that the timing is a problem. I've had lots of weeks that adding just one more project/job/task was very daunting.

With everything else weighing on her right now, I can see how one more "you have to do this now" would be annoying.
Hang in there Janie, things will get better.

Shoot straight

Re: You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

Agree Bcoz.

Just something else to squeeze in before her hubby's surgery in addition to going to work.

I don't think she's frustrated that she has to take a test, but is frustrated by the timing.

She lives near me, and it takes over an hour to get to Pittsburgh, park, sit, wait, and drive home. Its at least three hours out of your day when you are trying to deal with more important matters - like his insurance; pre-approvals, HIS tests and blood work, his EKG (a must before any surgery), etc.

Re: You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

I thought they just brought a cup and ya pee'd in it. Thats why it's called random. I can see where all that would be a pain.

Re: You Have Been Pre-Selected!!!

The "You have to do this by Friday or you'll be fired" is the problem on top of other pressing issues with my husband's upcoming surgery. I wish someone would come to the job and hand me a cup cuz I'd rather it be that way instead of driving an hour both ways plus waiting in a dr office (you never know how long you'll be there). So last night I was called to work for today and I said no because I had to go to take the drug test because I need my job! Seems the Captain would have rather me work today so he said he would take care of postponing the test til after hubby is taken care of which is a blessing because I just don't want to have to deal with any *extras* right now even though I had plans of going to Moon Township today to piddle in the cup... I'm sitting on the dock doing a 12 hour shift instead.

Uh Oh! Janie's got her gun!
