i have to take a urine test tomorrow. a piss test to determine whether or not i can be a receptionist. let me assure you that it takes a lot of drugs to not be able to answer phones or hand out mail. it seems that all the inconsequential jobs i've had, answering phones or making photocopies, requires a drug test. the jobs i've had where i have to work with important things like money, checks, or confidential papers have never asked for a sample of my pee.
the world is a fairly retarded place, but i'm getting paid to pee in a cup so i shouldn't complain. i shouldn't but that doesn't mean i won't. i hate being treated like a suspect before i've done anything wrong. i hate having to prove that i'm not a total fuck-up before i can make $8 an hour. it makes me want to rant and rave about civil liberties, the constitution and my right to privacy. then again, i need to pay the bills so if they want my pee that goddamn much they can have it. when i'm less poor i'll have ideals and values worth standing up for again.
