That Drug Test Was So Random.

What do you think the chances are that the youngest employee (who hasn't even been full time with the company for a year) would get chosen for the random drug test?

If you guessed 100% you are correct!  I was subjected to my first random drug test yesterday.  Can I just say that, at my company at least, these situations are super intense!  Basically, my boss got an email and I had 30 minutes to get to the clinic.  And as I told him, this was not enough time for me to go buy any sort of detox product!  Serious troubles for those regular recreational drug users.

Anyway, considering the fact that it takes probably 3-5 minutes to fill out the necessary paperwork and another 17-20 to get to the location you can see how you might have a pretty stressful situation on your hands!  Luckily, I finally got a phone with GPS on it so I did not get lost on the way. 

I won’t go into details about what happened during the whole thing because you probably can figure it out.  My favorite thing though was when I came back and one of my coworkers IM’d me.  The conversation went something like this:

Coworker: Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you that I told HR to draw your name because I think you’re a huge stoner lol. 
Me: That is so rude! 
Coworker: I also told them you have vodka in your water bottle. 
Me: Ugh. Seriously, I can’t tell you anything…

I do feel it is important to note that I don't actually think my age had anything to do with it.  There was an older guy there too so we were clearly spanning demographics.
