TOTD 2018-09-28 Everyday Carry

What items do you normally carry around with you?

For me, aside from keys, wallet, cellphone, ID badge that anyone would need to wear at work, I typically carry a small flashlight and a Schrade pocket knife.   I also have a all kinds of supplies in my backpack, such a multi tools, nail clippers, a flash drive, a small wrench, a much larger flashlight, an umbrella, multiple chargers, flat palm hairbrush, generic tylenol, etc.

My inspection kit has a pocket 18650 LED flashlight, small multi-tool, digital camera, normal and high-end gloves, goggles, and my lab coat.  I also carry a binder with all of the handouts, labels, and other paperwork I need to hand out, along with mechanical pencils and a sturdy-backed notepad.

You will note something missing from these lists.  My workplace does not allow any carrying of firearms, despite being located near huigh crime areas.  Many of the larger flashlights I carry may have a secondary purpose.

  1. Keys, wallet, knife (NRA-branded Bear EDGE), reading glasses, and handgun are on me.  A myriad of geeky computing items are in my computer bag, which pretty much goes where I go.  More serious tools are in the back of my truck, including socket drivers, tradesman screwdrivers (the funky ones for utilities and such), and my nice Fluke multimeter.

  2. As little as possible.

    Reading glasses, typically one set one my head or in a pocket, and another in a case either in a pocket or in a bag.  I worked on a ship recently, and kept a tiny flashlight in a breast pocket at all times.

    As I typically work in Japan, I am unable to carry my preferred 9mm rape whistle.

  3. Pocketknife, keys, cellphone and glasses.

    My employer and the office landlord, and all my clients, forbid firearms.

    I have a travel kit in the car with flashlight, spare glasses and tools, plus gloves and a coil of rope and a high-visibility vest.   (I have only needed to use the rope in the car twice in twenty years, but I was really glad to have it both times.)

    There aren’t a lot of pockets in socks.

    I usually travel light. Keys, cell phone, and depending where I am going my wallet.

    What? No chop sticks?

    I was told that it was rude to carry an empty plate and chop sticks when I visit other people’s houses. Gerry, when do you eat at your house? 😉

    I am surprised. I thought you lived in Pennsylvania. Why can’t the other people (You know who you are.) be nice like you?

    Sounds like something is brewing in that statement, 10 Cents. LOL
