Passing the test...

I may actually get to reset that counter soon, my friends. But first, I must pass the pee test. Oh, I've not done anything to make the test come up positive, but you see, there has been a little...issue... with the test.

On Tuesday morning I studied hard for my urine test (drank fluids and didn't "go" before I left for the test center. I usually "go" before I leave the house for pretty much any reason). I was the only person in the test facility when I got there so I was processed pretty quickly and then back on my way.

The test results were supposed to be done within 24 hours.

Wednesday passed. No word. Then the 24 hour turnaround was bumped to 48 hours.

All of this was very vexing because getting the job hinges on passing the alcohol and drug test and having a clean background check.

The background check came back clean by Wednesday morning. The alcohol test came back clean late Wednesday afternoon. Still nothing came back on the drug test.

At 5:30 Thursday evening I was informed that the lab allegedly never got the instructions to run the tests on my sample. Which was now disposed of. Which means I need to go BACK to the lab and have the tests run AGAIN and then wait some more. Because, you know, my stress levels weren't elevated enough.

So... hopefully I'll get to reset that counter soon. But I'm not holding my breath.

Relax. I know you must be stessed to the max. But try to stay busy. Get it off your mind. Maybe you can get rid of the counter all toghther.
Good Luck.
