A little paper cut out. That’s all it is.
Have you seen your Social Security Card lately?
I haven’t but I thought I knew where I put it: right next to my birth certificate.
Now I can’t find either.
I’m picking up a second job and to work, I need my SS card. I have the number. I would think if I can prove my identity, and provide the number that matches that identity, in the age of computers, it should be real simple.
But no. They must see this paper cutout that has my name and number printed on it.
Not a laminated card. Or some embossed sealed paper. Or secret hologram image. It is just a piece of stock paper.
Sometimes I wonder how we ever get out of our own way.
