    You have been sitting in pain at home and have yet to go to the doctor?

    Perhaps the pot makes the boo-boo's go away.

    They would need cause to drug test you. Simply dropping something on yourself is not cause.

    but you probably should not have to worry!

    If they drug tested everybody, UPS would be missing half of its workforce.......including management!

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers

    No no no no no no.....if you can last till you go back to work. You go into work....find your steward. Go with steward to sup...tell them you need to file an accident report for the injury you reported last week. Get a workers comp claim # and get your pot laden ass to the ER.

    In the future....when you are injured at work badly enough for them to offer you to stay home for a week....you ask to FILE AN ACCIDENT REPORT before you leave the building that same day!! Do not leave without a claim #. And see how fast they want you to show up to work the next day...even if you don't touch a package.

  15. Plus they probably covered up or failed to report said injury so they probably arnt going down that road. Go to work and got to the doctor.

    Remember this as long as you aren't drug free you are and easy mark.

    First off, it's doubtful they would waste money drug testing a pt loader. Secondly, they would only drug test a driver if he/she had a serious accident which cannot be explained by ordinary circumstances.
    Dropping a pkg on your toe does not warrant a drug test.
    Sheesh! Can you say paranoia?
