Don’t worry about it your not the 1st that’s had a bad pee day

Got my work history approved for my preferred company for CDL school, Prime. Just got the call today to take both drug and and physical at the same time. Had until the 04/05/2021 to do it but went right away because I have nothing to hide. I was a bit dehydrated when I arrived. First thing on the check list when I got their was drug test. No biggie. I go to the restroom and do my "thing" but couldn't produce enough urine to reach the amount they wanted. I spent maybe another minute trying to see if I can supply more but I couldn't . When I give the urine to the lady, not only was it not enough, the temperature was too cold. (From me trying to provide more, so dumb now that I look back at it, I could of use the "shy bladder" law but didn't know that at the time) First thought is oh no.

So I had to take give another sample with direct observation, very uncomfortable but you have to do what you got to do. This time I drank way too much and my urine was diluted, with a very slight yellow to it. They are sending my sample that didn't have enough urine, and was under temperature, and my diluted samples to the lab. So four in total I believe. I feel like I messed up very badly and feel horrible right now.

I read that if the sample comes back dilute negative, I might be able to retake the test. I also have the first sample on my mind. Not enough and temp too low. So I don't know if that will affect anything. I screwed up so bad, I can't believe it. I was in such a rush to get the process going, and this is the result. Only thing I can do is wait to see what happens in the next day or two, 😥

Youll be fine, I had to guzzle down like 4 waters when I did mine for Knight. The terminal manager gave me the water. Sent it off to the lab, all was good. In school currently.

Congratulations on making it this far man. Love the profile pic. I plan on getting a ZX6R as my first bike lol

if you don't mind me asking, in what time period did you down 4 bottles? 30-min, 1 hour? What was the color of your sample?

Sorry for the personal questions, never thought I would be in this position.

Keep on trucking/riding. 👍

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

This makes absolutely zero sense? What would you feel bad about? You said you gave the sample under direct observation, right? They watched pee come out of your ***** into a cup? How then, would the person say it looked diluted? Something about this story is missing.

What about it makes no sense?

I feel bad because I feel I gave two bad samples. First was under temp with not enough urine, second test I feel I drunk a bit too much and color was clear with a slight yellow tint.

Yes I gave it under direct observation. They seen EVERYTHING lol.

The lady didn't say it looked diluted, she made a noise implying it looks diluted. Almost like a "oh no" kind of noise.

I just want other people input. Its a open book, I'm not hiding anything

Thanks

You are way over thinking this. And I think I imagined why she groaned. Maybe she had a cramp or gas or something.

When I came to prime we sat in a line all day....80 of us waiting for the physical and drug test. We were constantly drinking and peeing and I didn't get my drug test until 3pm cause of it. Everyone's first urine of the day is more concentrated than others. Women take them with their periods and blood gets mixed in. Graphic yes, but I bet DOT rules don't say anything about that. So calm down.

They watched you. Your couldn't cheat that way. In still wondering how long you were in the bathroom the first time before coming out cause it takes a LONG time for urine to cool. I have seen samples sitting in a desk for a but before being tested or marked. (Under observation of tester filling out forms).

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

If you didn't do anything wrong you have nothing to feel bad about. Relax.

You guys/gals are right. I'm overthinking this. I'm going to take everyone's advice and just relax.

Thanks for the kind words.

Id say about a half hour, Not sure of the color, pretty clear. I have over 10 years clean/sober so I wasnt the slightest bit worried. zx6r is a good bike. My first race bike was 97 zx6r. I just sold my current race bike, R6 with an R1 front end. Also sold my R1. I was hardly riding on the streets anymore, and the last time I was out , I just didnt enjoy it like I used to. Ill concentrate on driving this first year, also want to get property so I need the money that racing gobbles up. Ill end up racing again, probably switch to cars, C6 vettes do really well on the track.
