I once had an employer ask if I could pass a drug test.
Me and a co-worker were to work with this guy on a project as sub-contractors. He asked us if we could pass a drug test. We both said no.

He then asked us if we had any weed, and we said yes.

Then, he said,"Alright, you passed the drug test. Let's go smoke a bowl."

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :smoke:

It reminds me of a couple of occassions when I thought someone was offering to sell me drugs, but they were actually looking to buy.

"I'm not holdin', I swear!"

7. Yeah, you know our town.
If most businesses started drug testing, they would lose half their staff or more.

17. Surest way to ensure crappy code in a software company is to find and fire
the pot-heads. Sure, there are more than the usual number of spelling/pointer errors, but the innovation and tight function makes for a superior product.

8. That's a killer story!
I've never been drug tested at work, and only one of my bosses smoked, but he was also a coke-head so I never smoked with him or even told him that I smoked.

9. You used to work for me???
I did something similar to a guy I was gonna hire for a roofing job. He asked me if I drug tested. I pulled a bag of weed out of my pocket and asked him "do you know what this is?". He said "yeah, it's weed." I told him "you passed the drug test, now get up on the roof."


:hi:

10. LOL! I've had the same thing done to me. I was so scared I was
about to have to take one and would be fired as a result. I worked for a major mechanical contractor in the town where I lived at the time and the boss was the owner of the company. He wanted to take some of us to the Charlotte NASCAR race (he later entered a car in NASCAR Grand Nationals). He already knew me and my work partner/friend were NASCAR fans so he asked if we could pass a drug test. Thinking I had best to be honest, I confessed that I could not. He said, "Weed?" Me: "Yes." He looked at my partner, "You?". Partner: "Ummm...". Boss says: "Good. Bring plenty with you to Charlotte. We're going to the races and I don't want to run out before we get there! And don't be smoking that shit at work!" And then he walked away laughing his ass off at scaring the shit out of us.

11. Between jobs and moving furniture once
I had a boss/business owner who smoked and would give you time to clean out before administering the company-mandated drug test. When it comes to furniture movers, you can't get too picky!

22. We had safety meetings at one place I worked
Discussed the safest way to light up without burning yourself or transport it without getting caught or ,best of all,the safest way to pass stupid tests.
Actually,smokers are safe workers due to the fact that we know workmens comp will not cover us if hurt on job.Because of that we refuse to take stupid chances that might get us hurt.
