Sanatize the hydrometer and put it directly in the wort/beer. No separate test jar needed!!

You got jipped. You should call and complain about not receiving you cheap plastic tube!

Like others have said, any vessel that appears to be like the original. But if you don't have one and did an extract brew and feel like you did a good job, your OG from the recipe will probably be pretty close. If you were asking right before pitching, I have at times, just put it in the bucket. If you are already in fermentation wait a couple of weeks and check a few days apart to see if your brew stops fermenting. Nothing really to worry about, you'll remember next time now for sure. Good luck.
