@macgenie @rosemaryorchard A few years ago, I locked my keys in the car in the grocery store parking lot…because I had a set of keys in my pocket—my office keys. (Fortunately, I realized as soon as I exited the car, so no groceries, and I had my phone, so I could call my parents and get a list of phone numbers of people nearby who weren’t on vacation who could come take me to get my spare key.)
Since then, I have started carrying my office keys in my other pocket to avoid confusion—as well as, over time, somewhat-obsessively making sure I have my keys and my phone before I close the car door!
@smokey Theoretically I could have gone to get the key from my boyfriend, and I could have gone to work. However both of them are about half an hour away, and my boyfriend could leave in just under that resulting in getting into the apartment faster. Though I don't have spare keys at work, these are "special" keys and getting them cut is a nightmare!
@smokey @macgenie @rosemaryorchard - This kind of confusion is why I don't have separate sets of keys. I know myself well enough to know that if I had two sets of keys to worry about I would 100% get them mixed up or lose one of them on a regular basis. My friends make fun of me for having so many things on my key rings but I know if I don't just carry them all together with me all the time I'd be in trouble. A lot.
@DrOct I used to carry just one set, but as I kept getting more and more keys, I could never find the one I was looking for, so I had to switch to two sets, with the work set being 2 connected rings to help out some with the “finding the right key” part. My dad has about 4 sets, and he often is without the set he needs, so I can see the argument for/appeal of a single set (on the other hand, when he loses a set—always temporarily, thankfully—he only loses 1 of 4, so that’s the other trade-off ;-) ). // @macgenie @rosemaryorchard
@smokey All of these things make sense, I have several rings on my set to separate keys for different purposes, but there could come a point where it'd be too much. Luckily I rarely lose my keys (in part because I jus thave the one set and it's always in the same pocket and never goes anywhere other than that pocket).
