I was drug tested today

Recommended Posts

They also gave me a breathalyzer. I've been taking Zyrtec for a couple of weeks. There's antihistamine in it. She said I have nothing to worry about.

I wish I could fail a drug test. But I can't. :bangheadonwall:

 

You are sorry bangheadonwall?

You are employable for many positions, if you so wish.

I've tested drugs. Always worked. I wanna say common sense prevailed but it was more economic. Recreational free for decades. The thermal rub is all the pharmaceuticals I gotta have.

I'm having a couple of shots of Jim Beam, as a nightcap.

One for me and one for you.

 

Keep our kids safe.

I think we're having a mass exodus of bus drivers. They're begging people to drive buses. A neighboring community has some of the most derp derp bus drivers I've ever seen. They drive like psychos. One of them put a special needs girl in his lap and let her drive the bus. She's like 8 or 9. It was reported and he admitted to it. He still has a job.

I bet it's hard to recruit school bus drivers because of the odd, not-full-time work hours and uh, unique, job requirements. Driving a lumbering oversize vehicle through rush-hour traffic, OK, but now you're telling me it's filled with KIDS?!? Yikes.

 

If you work in public primary education, thank you for your service.

 

Here in Dallas, we had a weird agency - "Dallas County Schools" - that only existed to provide school bus service to the various school districts in the county. (Schools in Dallas proper are run by the Dallas Independent School District, DISD). Anyway, there were various signs that DCS wasn't well run, one year they didn't have enough drivers hired at the start of the school year, so they hastily contracted with taxis and airport shuttles to take kids to school. You can imagine how well that went over.

 

Then it came out there were huge kickbacks and financial shenanigans involved in equipping all the DCS buses with cameras, inside and outside. Millions of dollars were spent, the whole thing was exposed as a scam, and a Dallas city council member was just sent to Federal Prison yesterday for his role ($450,000 in bribes) in the scandal. The DCS was disbanded and school districts had scramble to buy or contract out bus service for their districts.

I used to be drug tested regularly as a condition of my employment. I saw a subordinate of mine fail and get fired who knew the consequences.

Earlier this year a woman called in to a local (St. Louis) radio station during a "confess something" segment and said she worked in a day care center and sometimes they gave the little tykes benadryl to make them sleepy and calm them down. Judging from the public outcry, not many people have spent much time around small children. I'm a parent and I fully sympathize with the woman who called.

Last time I was told that a company was going to give me a drug test, I panicked...I was up for days trying everything I could get so I would be knowledgeable...and then when I got there, they explained it to me...damn! ;)

Advocating reasonable measures to keep small children under a reasonable degree of control... How parental of me... When DeepEtte was younger, we literally kept her on a leash to keep her under a degree of control and keep her from being hurt. She also has ADHD and took "drugs" for it for most of her childhood. She chose to stop when she became an adult, which was her decision at that point. I'm going to guess you don't have kids. Just a wild hunch.

My parents drugged me when I was around 5 or 6 years old. They had to drive from near Memphis to Austin Texas so my dad could receive an award from Ford Motor Company. I don't remember anything about the trip. I just woke up and we were there. I swam in the biggest swimming pool I've ever seen in my life. And then I woke up and we were home. I understand why they did it. It was the early 60's and drugs were recommended by experts, etc. but still kinda messed up.

That's just pathetic.

 

My son acted up some in 4th and 5th grade, The "authorities" wanted to drug him. I threatened them with legal action---they backed off. He graduated valedictorian.

 

A leash? REALLY?

Yes, a leash. She was 2 at the time and we were on vacation in Canada. It was for her own protection. Later, she went way beyond "acting up." Her grades were suffering. After several visits to a psychiatrist, she received a prescription for meds. Once we got the right med and the right dosage, she was a new kid. Nothing pathetic about it. If your approach worked for you and your son, congratulations (BTW, your response is enlightening; I see you've had that "Don't tell me what to do!" problem for a while now) but thank God you didn't raise my kid. Thanks.

Drugs and a leash. This is how we raise our kids.

 

Then we blame guns for school shootings.

 

:facepalm:

I know you want me to act like you don't exist and I wish I could but DeepEtte is a happy, well adjusted mid 20's adult today with no inclination toward violence. I'm a gun owner and she grew up with guns in the house and a healthy respect for firearms and their use. She was raised with appropriate parental controls (i.e, a leash when necessary) and meds when they were needed and prescribed by medical professionals. That said, I don't know what any of that has to do with school shootings. Then again, you probably don't either.
