    Excuse my ignorance, being from KaliFOURkneeYa and all but what is an "obligatory one guy, one cup'? With the regulatory environment we have around here I'm guessing it's a meeting with one guy from the administrative office fitting you with a mid-body mounted protective cup?

    The "whole pee in a cup so we can see if you get high" test. They asked during the interview if I could pass a drug screening, I told them "I'm boring. I can pass any test you have".

    Cliff's notes:

    I was overwhelmed with work, missed a target date on a project and was fired. Kicked back for a month and got hired at Mueller Brass for more money, fewer hours, and no travel. They are only 10 minutes from my new house, last job was 45 minutes.
