Well, folks...all 3 of you that follow....the drought is over!! I have met the man I'm going to spend the rest of my life with!!! I'll have to change the name of my blog and I'll have to remember to post! I've been a failure when it comes to posting. I'm going to think on a new blog name... I'm sure I'll get back just as quickly as I have been at posting...

That's right, I'll admit it! No shame, well a little. The drought is still on... not much to say on that. I have had a lot going on otherwise but its not something that can be posted.
Though the drought is in full gear I have met some interesting people recently. My job allows me to meet quite a few interesting people. I guess that's one of the reason's I enjoy what I do. No not the whole collecting urine part, which is not all I do, but helping people. If you keep your mouth shut people will tell you a lot. I guess they feel a closeness since you're holding their bodily function in your hand. I don't see it that way and recently had to tell a man he needed to keep that bit of info to himself. The conversation went like this:
me: I need you to empty your pockets (standard protocol in drug testing0
him: (while emptying his pockets there was a condom wrapper) Well, I had to get here somehow. I don't have any money. ya know.
me: (looking at him, like what?? I hadn't paid attention until he made that statement and then I saw the wrapper with big bold letters) ummmm...yeah, that's more than I need to know.
him: times are hard, you gotta do what ya gotta do, right?
me: really, that's more than I EVER need to know.
him: I'm just kidding. I got money. I want to be a professional gambler. I just lost $10,000. I just need $1000 and I'm back at the table. I've just got to do this cause I got a big house, big car, and 2 daughters I have to pay for their school.
him: Ya know what I'm sayin. I own my own truck and all and I'm waitin on money from it but until I get that $1000 I've got to work.
He then proceeds to tell me the flaws in our system of performing the collection. Yes, you better believe I set him straight. I've been in this business for almost 10 years, I know what I'm doing. In my line of business you are guilty until proven innocent.
This is what I walked away from that conversation with:
1. what an idiot.
2. which was the truth: 1. sex for travel or 2. professional gambler.
3. do I care what the truth really is??
4. I do not believe a word he said as he had to tell everyone who would listen or pretend to listen about his house, car and that he use to be a nurse. I forgot that one...
That my friends is the adventure of the day.
