Wallet, Keys, Phone.
Right pocket, left pocket, left pocket. And I'm right handed.
what the hell were you thinking?
Knives in the fork area??!?!
Left Pocket: Phone
Right Pocket: Wallet, House Keys, Car Keys
However, once in a while, much like the switching of the magnetic poles of the Earth, for no reason i'll swap them around.
Also, unless your phone's an 80s brick, doesn't that unbalance you a lot?
and i'm right handed.
however, heres where i can tell my story: i used to be left handed until when i was at nursery i broke my left arm. the teachers decided to force me to write with my right hand instead and as such, I am right handed. and have trust issues with grown ups.
but I guess they were trying to help you to write as quickly as possible?
I knew a girl at uni who was forced to be right handed by the nuns in the school she went to because they thought southpaws were evil. :-/
Anyway, she was sort of ambidextrous so you are too, most likely! Become a drummer!
but i can't write for shit on my left hand. i kick with my left though. :D
Or you play full lefty style?
I was brought up on open handed initally, but then my drumming teacher forced me into cross handed with the school kits, so i can play both. prefer open handed with ride on the left.
Any other crap in the left.
unless you've taken measures to ensure screens won't get scratched
But actually it doesn't tend to get too scratched.
my sharp gx20 got fucked this way.
otherwise known as the "mug me!" pocket
i do sometimes move my wallet to the front in areas of danger, like Scotland
but only in London. And Glasgow.
ipod - left pocket
keys go in my coat or any bag i might have on me
Doesn't this turn you into a women when it comes to finding your keys to get back in?
My keys are usually tied onto my bag these days. No explanation needed really.
while they hunt in their capacious bag for their keys.
But having them tied to your bag means you just tug on the string, and voilà!
Phone: left pocket
mp3 player: left pocket
keys: back pocket/bag/coat pocket
this is the correct system. reverse if you are left handed.
You lose your keys and you're completely fucked. Bags get stolen, coats get taken off.
the girlfriend will let me in the flat and my other keys aren't that important.
i've never lost my keys and the one time i misplaced my wallet i got it back. i win.
When's the little-un due now? It must be pretty soon. Nervous?
mines just your standard brown leather regulation shape thing. I'd be lost without it.
Was due on Sunday. It's the unnerving calm before the storm at the moment.
I'm guessing maybe your phone's somewhere a bit closer than your bag for this short period, then?
One was incoming calls and one was outgoing. Fucking hell.
"what you gonna do, phone me?"
iPod - suit jacket breast pocket
phone - suit jacket 'ticket pocket' (right hand of course)
keys - suit jacket right pocket
wallet - Overcoat inside pocket/suit jacket inside pocket (both left)
USB memory sticks - jeans left pocket
plectrums(plectrae?) - at least one in every pocket
Are you like Hank Scorpio in You Only Move Twice?
in these conditions, the suit jacket is employed as a convenient extra layer between the overcoat and the full length knitted cardigan but at the core remain the jeans and t-shirt
And I swap everything occasionally to make sure that both my thighs get an equal amount of cancer from my mobile.
NB Current set-up:
Wallet, keys, phone, oyster card
Right, right, left, left
who figured you were a bumbag, or at the very least, cargo pants man.
which developed into 'cargo trousers' once GAP got in on the idea but by then I wasn't so bothered.

*When out, if possible, pour the shrapnel into gf's purse at earliest opportunity. At home, all round coins except pound coins get put into the piggy bank.
Do you want to suck on a lemon or chew on a wasp?
I used to, and I used to.
But now I don't.
So I can't.
i knew someone would do the same as me. my phone is ancient so keys and phone being in the same is no problem.
Even then it's not going to be too bad.
and keep my keys in my wallet.
Wallet: Under Bowler Hat
Back pocket all the time. Never been mugged. Even when in strange, overcrowded third world cities. I did have my camera pickpocketed once in a monestry but it was promptly unstolen and handed back to me.
Anyway, phone right pocket, wallet back right. Everything else goes in my satchel. Jack Bauer has one ok!
backpockets are next to useless apart from maybe putting your hand in to adopt a casual pose by the bar.
That is NOT an acceptable bar pose.
but I'm left handed.
I then have to OCD check everything 5 times on the way to work. Not so easy when my bag has no compartments. Yes I'm a girl
