Everyone at work knows that we aren’t supposed to use marijuana, but almost everyone does! We’re only about twenty minutes from a state that allows recreational cannabis.
My boss knows that the two of us use marijuana and the only thing he has ever said was do not work under the influence.
I totally respect that rule and I have never used any cannabis products at work, that is why the story is so ironic. I went to service an oil furnace and the customer was acting really strange. I tried to avoid the man, because he kept looking at me adore I had a third eye or an extra arm. I inspected the oil furnace and fixed the problem. When I was done, I presented the customer with an invoice for the oil furnace repair, however he told me that it was too much currency and he claimed that I was trying to jack up the prices. I provided to give the man 10% off and he wasn’t blissful. I told him that I adjust the price, but he could call my boss to discuss the issue. When I came to work the next day, my boss pulled me into the office, then he told me that he had to fire me. The man called the corporate office and told them that I was cursing and swearing plus I adored cannabis. The corporate office told my boss that I had to be drug diagnosed! Both of us knew that I wasn’t going to pass the test, so he provided me an opportunity to resign first instead. I wasn’t doing anything wrong, but the complaint still caused me to lose my work.
