Here’s a unique twist on lost airline luggage:
I’m on travel for work at a nuclear site, waiting to get security clearance to start work. This involves a background check and a drug test for me, which can usually be done in about 8 to 24 hrs.
24 hrs – No word.
48 hrs – No word.
72 hrs – I’m told that Delta Airlines lost a shipment of urine samples, and mine was among them.
(Note, I’m on night shift, so I was woken up at 7am after 2 hrs of sleep and told to come back in to re-test. By the time I arrived at the plant, they had found the samples… Something’s wrong with the notification timeline there…)
These are usually couriered directly from the plant to the lab – so I’m guessing that the courier had to check them since the box of samples was over 3 oz :)
Is there anything Delta can’t lose? Other than our undying disrespect…
