I recently got hired at Best Buy in Okemos.  Which is awesome, partly because they have an excellent employee discount and partly because, oh you know, paying bills is semi-important. 

Part of the stipulation for employment over at Best Buy is that one has to take a drug test.  I call my step-mom, Kim, and tell her about after 3 interviews they hired me!  She congratulated me and asked when I started training.  I told her I first had to take a drug test and when they received the results they would call me in for orientation.  She then proceeds to ask me if I will pass the test?  And informs me that if I don't think I will pass there are products at the health food store that will yield a desired passing result.  Thanks for the advice! :)

Wednesday comes around and I wake up for my 10am drug test.  Let's just say I don't remember the last time I was up before 10am.  Scheduling my drug test first thing in the morning wasn't the greatest idea I've ever had.  I made the executive decision that peeing before I got to the clinic would result in a lack of having to go once I arrived, no matter how much liquids I consumed on the way there.  The testing facility was only about 15 minutes away from my apartment so I fought the urge and drove.  I signed in and the woman called my name.

Clinic receptionist:  Will you be able to use the bathroom?
Me: Yep!
Receptionist: Are you sure?
Me: There is no doubt in my mind.

She explained to me the procedure and cautioned me not to wash my hands or flush the toilet.  She then asked if I could make sure to fill up the cup at least to the first line.  I again assured her it would be no problem.  I could have filled up two cups!!

Lesson learned: Don't schedule a drug test first thing in the morning.  Not sure how useful this information will be to me in the future, but what the hell.

Now I just have to wait for the results!
