What's in your pocket?

Standard for me:

Right front: pocket watch, loose change (if any)
Left front: keys
Right rear: wallet and comb
Left rear: handkerchief and Swiss Army knife

How about you?

Right front: Palm pilot
Left front: Mad money (loose change, leftover bills from when I break a $20)
Right rear: Wallet
Left rear: Nada!

You should include what hangs from you! In my case:
2 ID cards (around my neck on a lanyard)
2 Secure ID tokens (clipped to a belt loop)
2 Cell phones (company on left hip, personal on right hip)
1 1-gig memory stick (around my neck on a lanyard)

I have to go through a check-list every morning before leaving the house.

er, nothing in the pockets. However... the 'pocket' book (aka, shoulder bag) has:

wallet, appointment book, keys, cell phone, tissues, mirror, pack of gum, lipstick, eyeglasses

I have a wallet in my back pocket and that's about it on a regular basis. i throw loose change in a jar somewhere because I can't stand it jingling when I walk.

From time to time I wall have the iPod and/or the PDA and/or cell phone in my pocket but I don't keep them there unless they are needed.

Nothing around the neck. I keep my magnetic lock opening security badge in my wallet.

Left front: money clip, loose change (including a Kennedy half, and Eisenhower dollar, and some mysterious Eastern European coin I found this past weekend).

Right front: wallet, keys.

Rear: Nothing. I don't like that "cancer on your ass" feeling I get when I stuff my wallet in my back pocket - I use a thin wallet to hold a few essential cards, and it's more secure in the front pocket.

I usually don't have anything in my pant pockets. Sometimes my cell and a lighter (damn smokers). But in my coat pockets I have a chap stick and tissues in the left pocket and in the right one I have my cigarettes, my car keys, and my metro card.

Right front: keys (486 CPU fob hands outside), Swiss Army knife, loose change.
Left front: Wallet, folding "Winchester" lockback
Back right: nothing
Back left: nothing
(But hanging on my belt is a cell phone leather "wallet" with three more vari-sized multi-tools and a set of pocket hex sockets *heh*)

Unlike Cindy, I don't carry my glasses in a case. I wear them. It must be nice, Cindy... :-)

And, Ted, comb? Still have hair, eh? (I pulled all mine out during the Clinton years... )

right front: loose change, Bic lighter
left front: pocket watch, spare truck keys (always carry 2 sets of car keys and you'll never be locked out!)
right rear: wallet (for ID, credit and other cards)
left rear: billfold (for money)

My key chain clips to and hangs from a left rear belt loop. (That way my 8 keys don't poke holes in my pockets.)

Nothin'. I either keep all of my junk in my backpack or in my jacket pockets. Since I'm not wearing my jacket right now, I have: 2 quarters in my right front pocket and my wallet in the zipper pocket on my left leg. I'm wearing wind pants, it's casual Friday.

In my front left pocket: lighter
In my front right pocket: nothing
In my rear left pocket: Credit card from when I got gas for the car.
In my rear right pocket: nothing

Everything the purse.

David, I fail to see how my reading eyeglasses would be more notable than this:

"486 CPU fob hands outside"

Talk about a geek!

p.s. just don't ever ask me to read the date on a penny, even WITH my glasses on.

Right front: Loose change, an empty gum wrapper and a distressingly large wad of lint

Left front: My wedding ring--I've been gardening all morning and didn't want it to get dirty

Right back: Nothing (I hate wallets, my rear is already fat enough as it is...)

Left back: Nothing (see above)

Right cargo pocket: Two fortune cookie fortunes, the writing having been long-since worn off

Left cargo pocket: three beaded Mardi Gras necklaces Zane had been playing with

Shirt pocket: Clip-on sunglasses, 2 sticks of cinnamon gum, and a hair tie

In the pockets, not a lot, I've a nifty money clip that also holds credit cards and my driver's license, that goes in the front pocket. Cell phone is clipped to the belt. Sony Clie in one front pocket, keys in the other with the money clip. Handkerchief in whichever pocket doesn't feel stuffed. However, whenever possible I just use my backpack, which is considerably more occupied.
