The paperwork is the worst part so far

I have my bags packed to recover at my parents' home. I have new books to read, games to play, and movies to watch. I have new gowns and sweat suits to recover in and even new panties and bras. I've had my pre-op and even have a calendar of things for my co-workers. I AM READY...

However, there is one major sticking point. To have more than two weeks off, I have to submit my FMLA paperwork. I have done my part. However, the doctor's office has not. I have given them three copies now. And yet NOTHING has been faxed to the HR Coordinator here.

I work for the state government. So red tape is a way of life for me, but this is getting crazy. My nerves are already on edge so each time I call about it I'm on the verge of tears.

Take a breath and then call once more. Squeaky wheel gets the grease or in this case the paperwork done...
Good luck...

Re: The paperwork is the worst part so far

I guess I won't be getting the paperwork. The person who has been handling it called in sick and is not expected back until next week. Nobody can even find it, as she didn't put it back in my file.

Editing to add...Never underestimate the power of a mother. Just when I was giving up, she got it for me. I don't know what jedi mind trick she used, but she had them complete a new form for me.
