UPDATE: Hey, my pot smoking friends. Give me your best guess.

Update: Anyone interested, last Thursday bought a drug test at Walmart and it showed negative. Friday I went down to take the pee test and found out today that I passed. Yea me. I start Friday. Hoops to jump thru to get a job. Thanks for everyone's help, telling me about the tests sold in stores and giving me the confidence taking the test with all the information provided in this thread.

I have a job I am starting 11/15 and there is a drug test, urine. I have only done it once before and I know it came up that I had done pot because I was smoking almost daily and just a couple days before I took the test, but they hired me anyway. That was 3 months ago. I got another job and I will have to do another test. I do not think this job will hire me if I come up with pot. Upside is I haven't felt like pot for a couple three months. I ate an edible a couple times in Aug, none in Sept. Oct a friend came over on 10/9. Two puffs from a joint and less than a week after that I had an edible. And I have not had any since, I do not think. Maybe one more edible somewhere around beginning of Oct but I do not think so.

I have not done the test enough to have experience how it will show. I know we do not know, and all kinds of factors involved but what is you best guess on this test. I do not want to quit the current job if I do not pass this test, for sure. But I would rather not go to work tomorrow.

And I am in Eugene and just as legal to have an edible as have a glass of wine, for anyone thinking I am a law breaker.


A call today. Message to provider. Got her first vacc. Headache and nausea.

I asked her how long since she got the first vacc. 20 minutes. Say what? The more conversation I had with her, she was so nervous getting it I suggest maybe the headache was her angst at getting the shot. She acknowledge could be why she had an upset stomach. Fuckin' sad. She said no problems getting the flu shot, but this one she had trepidation. So sad, what the right did with misinformation.

A woman that works in my cubicle called in yesterday but at work today. Boss said this morning at

pre work meeting to be sure to wear masks in common areas, that illness going around. I asked, "Covid? I need to be more diligent if so.". He said, act as if, but they did not know. I specifically and clearly told him, give me a heads up if covid. He acknowledged he would. The gal that was sick came in late and never faced me, all the while toward her computer, away from me. I put my mask on. (Not wearing when in our space so we can be heard on phones). Afternoon I get my afternoon coffee, and take mask off, look at co worker and she is masked. I drink coffee, then mask up again. Finally I ask her what sick she had. Her friend in another office across the way tested positive around 2 this afternoon about when my coworker put the mask on. This is a couple hours later I ask about illness having her call out yesterday. She is looking flushed. Boss will not let her go home. She gets tested tomorrow morning. She and her daughter were sick all weekend and coworker said only an upset stomach now though she looked flushed to me. In a little space, but now she is masked. My boss said nothing, though he was well aware.

I am a little bit pissed. Covid looks different on a 60 yr old smoker than these kids I am around.

Covid surge and a new job.

Reason this with me. I am sitting in a small office Friday with 3 people, in a small room that holds about 36 people (3 per cubicle, 2 or 3 per office) all having to wear masks but the whole job is talking on the phone, expelling breathe. I am sitting in this office with two others, door closed. The gal that is training me, while wearing a mask, though some times pulling down and speaking out or readjusting and touching everything tells me.... I do not have a vaccination. As a matter of fact, I have been trying to get covid for the last year an half.
Small office, door shut for 8 hours listening to her answering calls and helping customers trying to get info on covid testing sites and vaccination, and ya, other health issues. 8 hours in a small room, no ventilation telling me she is trying to get covid.

I mean, I get I have to go back to work. I get UI can't be forever. We have morgue trucks pulling into hospitals to refrigerate the dead because too many dying and being overwhelmed in funeral homes.

What do I do with that? A year and half, not seeing boys, not going out, doing all the things I need to do to not get covid cause I doubt my lungs could handle it, though the rest of me is healthy and weight on my side, though blood type not on my side.

I cannot talk to the 30 something young boss having only just been hired. Who knows? He might not have been vacc'ed either and think it his right. Just where do I put this and walk into the office tomorrow?

Prove me wrong....

Rubbery bananas.

I googled but could not find the answer, though others were asking too. Does anyone know why periodically I will buy bananas that look good but they are rubbery. When I try to break them up for my smoothies they just bend, not really break up easily and the smoothie is so thick cause the banana did not break down normally in the mixer.

Curious, .... Gotta find the answers, lol.
