Were you born in Texas or Cali I forget.So, my passport got munged, it's about to expire anyway, and I need to have it for a business trip to Mexico in the not-too-distant future. No big deal, just go dig up the old birth certificate, right?
Turns out that sometime in the last decade, water got to it and now it's partially ruined.
So now I have to deal with even more government bureaucracy. Yay. I am soooo thrilled. Still on the phone with State, seeing what 'expedited processing' is really meaning these days....
My dog actually ate my birth certificate when we moved into the new house so I had to get a new one from Texas. Was easy to do the expedited version as long as I was there at the records building in Austin. Went in in the morning gave them the proper documents and they had a new "Copy" of my original birth certificate by the next morning. Was a bit of a PITA to fly down there and get it done but I was planning to vacation down there anyway.
