    Completely clean? Maybe like 95%. Under 50 micrograms per whatever unit they measure? 99.9% - it's been way too long.

    So, if I understand you correctly... you have to take a urinetest for drugs, to work at best buy??

    I must say, you do look a bit suspiciously "happy" in your avatar DR

    Hah at the avatar.

    Anyway, the only thing that might show up is the prescription for hydrocodone I had recently, but ran out of 2 weeks ago. Opioids clear your system in a day or two though, and I can get my doctor to verify.

    Thanks Ghost! Since I got let go at my last one, I've been pretty bummed. As you guys can tell, I've had nothing better to do than troll these forums all day every day for the last month. So, woohoo! Work! And work with tech! YAY!

    Did you ever see the movie "Clerks"...one of the lines goes:

    "This would be a great place to work if it wasn't for the customers!"

    ...or something like that!

    Yea! PIRG Indeed haha. I see all sides of the sobriety and what not argument. I go with what has worked for me. Really, I don't feel too strongly one way or another. Never do too much of anything and you're probably good.

    Anyway, Monday Night Football... GO PACK GO!
