    I think the drug program I am on does mostly 1-2 year people and leave the older people in the pool alone. When I first got into it I was done every 2-6 months. Now on my 4th year I have not been pulled.

    I believer there were changes made to the intensity of testing a year or so back when the percentage of 'dirty' tests had dropped to a level that they deemed acceptable, and that the number of tests prescribed was burdensome to the industry.

    I've been pulled once at LS in almost 8 years. It's a hilarious 'beat around the bush' conversation before they say the 'magic words'. I didn't have anything else to do, so I called the guy back and told him I was headed to the testing facility. It's kind of a joke.

    Where we work they obviously can't tell ya beforehand, but when your told to come through the yard an check thru safety, it's typically a dead give a way that either the Mrs or I are going for a random.

    Gotta read between the lines, and be part of the super secret squirrel club that has all the juicy bits.

    I need to put in for an updated decoder ring. Because, to be fair, the only reason I get up every morning is the never ending quest for juicy bits.
