I had my pre-employment drug-screening yesterday. I've already logged 22 workdays, received two paychecks, sang "Happy Birthday" to a coworker, and attended two company-wide meetings. But I just had my pre-employment drug screening. So my question is this; are my employers just really laidback about the drug test or did they observe some kind of behavior in me that made them think I might need a drug test? I sincerely hope it's not the second option. I mean, I know I'm weird sometimes, but I don't think I'm so weird that people would assume I'm on drugs.
Speaking of random subject changes....
I went to Wal-Mart on my lunch break today to buy some new Hanes t-shirts (a flash-mob of ants decided to chew through our collection of white laundry). And I made the mistake of wearing a blue polo and khakis today. I usually catch that when I go to Best Buy, but I forgot about Wal-Mart. So I had two packages of Hanes products and I was perusing the computer accessories aisle. And if you're carrying products through the store without a cart and wearing a blue polo (untucked), then you look like a Wal-Mart employee. So I helped her find the cell phone counter and then left the area quickly in case she had a more difficult question. I've found it's simpler to ask them what they need rather than embarrass them by saying, "Uh, I don't work here, you stupid old hag." People don't take too kindly to being yelled at by a stranger in accidental uniform.
But she figured out pretty quickly that I wasn't an actual employee. I was standing in plain view, wearing a clean shirt, and I was polite and helpful. And I've never met a Wal-Mart employee that matches that description.
