I'm so scared. I just started a new job, but I'm worried my birth certificate won't get here in time. It said it should arrive on the deadline to turn it in, but I don't know if it will. I'm just hoping HR will accept my order receipt until the birth certificate gets here. If the certificate doesn't get here in time, and they don't accept the order confirmation, I'm fired. I needed either a birth certificate or a social security card. My birth certificate is in storage in another state (I just moved and couldn't move all my stuff down at once like I planned), and my social security card is missing. But you can't get a social security card without a birth certificate. As soon as this damn birth certificate gets here, first thing I'm doing is photocopying all my important papers, getting a replacement SS card, and putting them all in a binder at home. I knew I should've replaced them before I moved, but I didn't think it'd be this much of a hassle.
