I was working in an office and I got hurt on the job.
I was stacking boxes on top of a shelf when I fell off the ladder.
The first thing my boss made me do was take a drug test. I did not pass the test, because I was using recreational marijuana at the time. I knew I wasn’t allowed to use recreational marijuana per the employment agreement with my company, but I took a chance that I would never get caught. When I did, I didn’t protest or cause a scene. I left the office and gathered all of my personal items from my desk. I had to find a new job quickly, but I really didn’t want to work in an office again. I put my application into several different businesses. I didn’t hear anything during the first week, but I tried to wait patiently. When I was starting to feel anxious, I went to the recreational dispensary to purchase more marijuana. While I was there, I overheard a few employees talking about being short-staffed. I asked the budtender if the place was hiring at the time. I spoke with the manager who interviewed me on the spot. The next day I received a phone call from the manager of the marijuana dispensary. She offered me a full-time job working in the office. The job even comes with discounts on marijuana products. I still work in an office, but my job is a lot different than it was in the past. Instead of dealing with facts and numbers, I am surrounded by recreational marijuana products.
