The Cup of Professionalism

I work in a manufacturing environment, and as such, my colleagues and I are subject to annual drug screenings, which you may know is a urine test.  I understand the need for such a thing and have no qualms about complying.

However, it is a kind of odd event, particularly in a large facility like ours.  My office is pretty far from the folks in charge of collecting the “samples”, who are in-turn pretty far from the nearest “facility”. 

In all of the career presentations ever made to us in high school and college, I don’t recall this being brought up:

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be here to talk about what I do for a living.  I love my job.  I get to help advance science, get to work with some of the most interesting people in the world, and I like to think that my team and I are doing something worthwhile for humanity. We offer competitive salary, great benefits, an on-site cafeteria. . . and once a year, I have to carry a cup of my own urine throughout the ENTIRE building.”
