What's in your wallet.

Recommended Posts

Only the size of a Travel Bathroom Bag. The cards all put together are only about the thickness of half an inch. The bigger the bag, the more you put in it! :biggrin:

Along with the usual cards and cash, I keep my Australasian Order of Old Bastards membership card; I became a member in 1985. If you are approached by another member and you don't have your card with you there is a forfeit of one pint of ale to be paid to the other chappie.

I don't have a wallet because I don't need one. All I carry is my phone and bank card.

Do you really need a phone ?

To add, I very really carry my wallet, I let Mrs C put her purse in her bag instead. Feels a lot better when she buys me my ale !

Some of that funny green money they use here.  Bankcard.  A funny green card with my picture that says I'm allowed to be here, work and pay taxes.  A piece of paper on which I wrote words to the effect of,. If I'm badly damaged and out of it with little hope of recovery, DO NOT RESUSCITATE...   Bein' sa cheerful keeps me  Goin'!   :dry:

 

Edited to add.  I should have read the thread.  I said essentially the same thing back in 2015.  Oh! The joys of ode age!

Not "Whats in your wallet"? but,"Whats in your drawers?" no not them drawers the kitchen drawer, we all have a drawer in the kitchen that we keep all sorts of crap things in, I remember my grandmother used to keep paper bags in the drawer that was built into the kitchen table, this was in the 50's/60's so I suppose living in hard times encouraged saving them sorts of things, we have a drawer in the kitchen that seems to be the de fault drawer for anything and everything, spare batteries,small torch, various pens, old car keys I no longer have the car they fit, piece of string, elastic bands,cigarette lighters, spare refill for the pens,four rulers, packet of 7mm cable clips? passport photo (don't have a passport),five rolls of selotape,roll of masking tape? tape measure (26ft) Araldite epoxy,box of staples,compass, boot laces,the bloody list is endless,now where did I put that crash helmet?

Don't have much to add to that, maybe a magnifying glass and some of those felt things you put on chair legs to stop 'em from scratching the floor.

After reading this thread I need to take advice from Catfan, I need to carry money as it's for sure the lady won't and as for going to the bar, once when I was 50, same when I was 70, somehow 60 got missed.

 

I tell everyone my ladies nickname for me is 'wallet'.

Mrs. L was talking about an article she read about guys putting their wallets in their back pocket and that it could cause lower back pain and thus better to put it in a side pocket.  Long story short, it got me thinking.

Back in the 60s about the only thing I had in my wallet was a bit of cash.  No credit or debit cards.  No such thing as far as I knew.  Possibly a driver's license, but no picture ID of any kind.  What different days.  One night I was walking home from my girlfriends when a police car stopped next to me.  They asked me where I had been, where I was going etc.  I didn't get sassy.  Just told 'em the truth.  They didn't ask for any ID.  I didn't have any.  They wished me a pleasant good night   and went on their way.

For all our technology it doesn't seem better.  Now it would probably be,  Your papers, Please!   j

Strangely enough, a few years ago i was travelling down to Bristol to my fathers for the weekend, and when I arrived i had a pain in my right thigh. Noticing that I was walking strange, i explained that I had a pain,  whereupon he replied that he used to get the same thing when he drove up to ours. He found it was his wallet causing the problem, after that I always remove mine before driving any distance, never had a problem since !.
