They drug test people that have that Crappy of a job?
Low wages, Crappy tips, clothes smelling like grease and cigarettes.
Surely there has to be a better place than the huddle house for breakfast.
I'm assuming the huddle and waffle house are on the same level there as they are here in the south?
I sure miss bob Evans in Indiana.
I can't even eat cracker barrel. That's some garbage food right there.

they drug test for every job that is min wage anymore from what ive seen. just a way for them to try to invade ppls private life more and try to tell them how to live their life cuz if u enjoy smokin a joint then u arent allowed to work.

That sucks.
I'm a machinist with one of the worlds largest company's(15 yr employee) and they just started doing random tests like 3 years ago. People were dropping like flies around here.
It's amazing to think people would choose drugs over an $80k per year job. I can tell you, it happens more than people would think.

Sad to hear that's the case if the rumour is true.

You'd have to see this place to understand. Before I came here I would have never guessed, but the drug problem is worse than anything I've seen. In my adult life I've lived from coast to coast and no place has the drug problems that eastern Kentucky does. If I ran the Huddle House I'd likely drug test as well, just to protect myself. When those people that aren't having their private lives invaded decide to serve food that makes people sick or passout and fact plant into the grill you know law suits would follow. No need to get caught up paying out millions if you can avoid it.

I don't know if that is the true reason it closed or not, but I wouldn't be shocked.

A restaurant is a difficult business to own and run no matter where it is located.

Drugs are bad in KY, but you have to blame the Doctors for writing the prescriptions out for people. I know a family that the husband gets 150 lortabs a month and the wife also gets that many who in the hell beside someone that has cancer or is terminally ill needs that many, they should only be given 30 a month instead of 150. I seen a sign yesterday in a Docs. office it said that we will only write out pain pills if you have cancer or terminally ill that is how it should be these pain clinics should be shut down that is how everyone gets all the pills that is circulating out there.Blame the Doctors!!!!!!!

Blame the Doctors my arse. A Doctor has to take the word of a patient as to the amount of pain they are in. Every single one lies just to obtain powerful painkillers or nerve pills. You don't even have to take my word for it. Walk in to any Doctors office and when they ask about your pain tell them you don't have any. I will guarantee you don't get one single thing. Furthermore, hollering this area is worse then other places is foolish. The entire Country is obsessed with medications and dope. Once again yu don't have to take my word for it. Fire up your old pickup and head to any inner City in America. It used to be you couldn't go in such places after dark, but now it is just as dangerous during the day, and you will be lucky to get out alive. Crackheads, methheads, and any other assortment of addicts just looking to rob somebody. At least you can still get out after dark here without the fear of being killed for the spare change in your pocket. I'm of the belief people are f'n stupid anymore and just looking to badmouth the area they live. There are roads leading in and out of Pike county, and not one single person is gonna stop you from leaving. If I hated an area as much as a few of you act I would pack my belongings and hit the road. I'm also of the opinion it is hicks that don't know any better and never been anywhere in their lives. Their entire world is this small area and they just flat out don't know any better.
