I given blow jobs to call girl now I m worrying about aids I wan to know tat by giving blowjobs can cause aids?
Hmmmm....: I hate to break it to you, but if you're giving blow jobs to a call girl, she's no girl. A "blow job" is oral sex performed on a penis. But maybe you mean that you're giving oral sex to a real woman ("cunnilingus"). The risk of HIV is low but not zero. Things that increase the risk are gum disease (you) and the presence of menstrual blood (her). ...Read more
Went out with for a friends bday last night got pretty drunk. Could be recieving a call from coca cola to be given the job. Will alcohol show on U.A?
Depends on the test:
The length of time it takes your urine to test "clean" depends on what exactly is being tested- there are tests for alcohol itself, but also for metabolites of alcohol (EtG is the main one) which can last up to 80 hours in the urine.
so if you are tested during that window it will likely test positive. But its not illegal to drink alcohol, and testing positive might not result in losing the job

I work in a call center with shifting schedules everyweek. Is it possible that its the reason why I get anxiety attacks?
Yes.: If you mean that the schedules rotate each week, then absolutely. Weekly rotating shift work is very taxing; such an assignment is foolhardy. Workers can never get their circadian rhythms stable, hence they are in a constant "jet lag" with the known cognitive and physiologic impairments. If schedle changes are moddest, then it's something else eg, anger re: inconvenience. /unpredicability. ...Read more
