Monday my husband went to work a 6 am. and as soon as they walked through the door, they were doing random drug tests. Apparently, over the weekend, there was a big party, that alot of them went to. As soon as they got to work all of the ones that went to the party, were called to do the random drug test. A few others had to go too, but not many. Out of 50 drug tests only 8 passed. My question is, do you think it was set up? I don't know if it was a set up, but I do think someone turned them in. Do you, or do you think it was just a coincidence that out of 500 people only the ones that went to the party, were called to take a drug test.

That definitely smells of a set up to me. If it was truly random, then only a few of the 50 would have turned up, but when there's only 8 clean ones in the whole bunch it makes it suspicious to say the least. I mean, what are the odds?

Hell yes it sounds like a set up. I think it is called entrapment. That is way too high a number to be a coincidence. Perhaps soemone who was not invited to the party wanted to get even!!

Someone had to have turned them in, how else would they have known who was there? I think it was a total set-up and to me sounds like a possible lawsuit. I am not one of those people that think everyone should sue, but something is not right there. Was your husband one of the ones at the party? Or were there a few people that didnt go also checked? That is just a crappy way to run a company.

My husband did not go to the party and was not one of them tested either. He just said they were standing at the timeclock and picking people as soon as they clocked in. No one knew what was going on really. All I can say is it must have been one heck of a party.

I guess so. That is a little strange though that they only choose the people from the party. Someone either told or like someone else said a person that wasnt invited told. But I have NEVER heard of that happening anywhere.

First I sure hope your husband was one of the eight who passed! Pretty unlikely coincidence, but I guess my question would be whether the workers at this company were advised at the time of hire that illegal activities engaged in outside of work hours would result in termination.

Not a set up just trying to make sure every one is safe

Wow, to me, this definately sounds like a set up. Especially since it was done to most of the ones who went to the Party. Was it from a jealous person who was not invited and seeking revenge? What happened to all of them who failed? To me, sounds like this would not be one of the best places to want to work either with people like this.

Well it is hard to say for sure. I would have to say that yes, it most likely WAS a set up just. However, very strange and interesting things happen hehe. But that is almost a little too strange that it just so happened to be the people who had gone to the party. I have a feeling that maybe a bunch of people are work were talking about it and so someone heard about it and told the boss or something about it. That is not too cool .. But I suppose thats just how life is sometimes hmm? Well .. I hope your husband wasnt one of those among the ones caught, and if so then maybe he learned some valuable lesson. Im sure that either way, he and the rest did anyways.

Well that sure sounds like it was set up to me, I suppose it was time to clean house and this was a venue to do it. So who picks up the work of 42 workers who are gone now that has to have a impact on those still working?

All the rest of the workers are picking up the slack until they get some new people to cover. My husband has had to work 12 hours the last two days.
