Kicked out of orientation!

It wasn't test strips...it was sent to a lab which takes a day or two at least. if I failed I would have received a call from the "mro". I know I passed the test. I did nothing wrong...I guess it's the way prime does things. I was trying to make sense of it myself but can't let it bother me anymore. It's their loss!

I had to re-test in front of their dr at that time so it would not go on my record. They were assuming I was lying so they sent me home. Now that they have the results they can see that I was being truthful and something must have been wrong with the temperature strip.

I did ask if there was ever a problem with the strips and he said no. But the guy in front of me said his didn't register either. Mine was actually the only one he really looked at. He had pre-marked all of our paperwork that the temp was good! He actually had to scratch it out and remark it on my paperwork! Unbelievable situation. Thank you for you support. You are correct...prime was not meant to be!!

So if I re-took the test on the same day in front of their dr and it came back to them as passed...there is nothing they can do to my record. Right?

The guy at prime was a total a-hole. Pretty much calling me a liar right to my face.

No I didn't fail. At least I never received any call from mro saying that I did. I know I'm clean.

No I re-took the test 1/2hour later when I could pee again and had to have the dr in there with me, pull pants down and shirt up. Very uncomfortable but I did it.

So here's one for you. I went to prime orientation last Monday. I went in to give a urine sample and when I came out the temp strip did not register! They pulled me right out of class and told me they were disqualifying me! Told me only three reasons it would not register. Accused me of tampering with it. So in order for it not to go on my record I had to **** in front of dr. No problem! I know I'm clean. I guess my question...is can they somehow put something negative on my dac report?
