    I understand what your saying. I eben mentioned I didn't want my blood pressure to be to high. I also said i should be fine because I already passed. But I mentioned I didnt like the fact I was accused of swapping and felt like I couod give this guy some greif for accusing me.

    But my main issue was how this guy was performing my hernis test. The rules and regulations about how they check for hernias is a little less detailed. I'll probably go with the flow for fear of him failing me on purpose. I figured with the thousands of people going threw this process maybe someone might have some advice about this particular situation.

    Just go get the test, you’re worrying way too much about it. I doubt they’ll remember your bad review. You’re simply not that important. The Doctor will check whatever your employer specifies. I’ve even had back x-rays. What other choice do you have? I don’t see what the shaky Janitor has to do with anything, Lol. Maybe he’s got Parkinson’s, you don’t know. Maybe he’s a dope fiend. Who cares, as far as proper procedures, so much incompetence everywhere. Doctors probably strung out on dope himself. Not your problem. Relax. Go get the test, when they plant drugs in your urine sample, or molest your genitals, then you can worry.

    Well guys, got it done and it was a lady... Hardly touched my stomach...

    It was funny too bc when I waa doing the drug test i saw a tall dude who looked my last Dr. Reach Around... So i ask the drug test guy, hey is that guy the doctor? He said, him? No. And then called that guy over... I was like, hey you looked that the last Dr who gave me my physical. Thought you might of been him. He was like, looked like me with a big thinking face on.. He said no I don't remember anyone who looked like me. I was like well you might not have been here, it was 2 years ago. He said, ive been here 6 years. I said, well i only ask because he gave me a reach around... Instantly that guy points at me and says, OH! Thats Dr. Whatever. He got fired about 1.5 years ago. Hahahaha

    At least they didn't stick a finger up your butt to check for blood in your stool. An old-school touch of the jewls isn't that bad...
