    I have a job interview. been looking forever it seems for a job since the "big issue" last november that found me with out mine. Simple enough work, being a bench tech for printer repair. all in all i hope i get it, it's nice to be at home with my kids but i need to socialize with people my own age too.

    i had to leave my last job due to an allergy i have to marijuana. I can smell both the plant and THC and am very allergic to it. Which reminds me, I have had to find very creative ways to explain that with out sounding like i am sickly or something. anyone have some though on how i can explain leaving due to something like that?

    Be honest. If you try to get shifty with an explanation, then chances are they'll see it.

    Just tell them what really happened. How did that come up at the job? Coworkers? You? Just be straight up. "Yeah, had to leave my last job because I'm allergic to THC, and my coworkers were constant drug abusers."

    cool thanks for the advice on that Jux. I will do that. I would rather be open about it then find creative ways to explain those reasons for leaving a job.
