Today while I was out doing my errands, I stopped by the lab to do my job-mandated drug test. By way of preparation I stopped at a fast-food place and bought a giant soda.
There was nobody else there, so it was a quick stop. I gave the lady my ID, took care of business (so to speak), she decanted it into an official specimen container, and she handed me a receipt. They’ll be sending the results to the temp agency.
Quick and easy, but I still can’t help but wonder why it’s a requirement. Is marijuana really such a huge problem in the work force these days? Or is it, as is my suspicion, a tool to reinforce the fact that I’m just a faceless work-force peon who is easily replaced if I don’t toe the line?
Whatev. At least I’ll get a paycheck.
