When I broke my arm in the 6th grade, they installed titanium plates. When I broke my arm again in the 10th grade, they removed said plates and installed new titanium plates. I keep one of those plates on my key ring. It's perfect for those show-and-tell moments when people ask me about the wicked 6 inch scars on my arm...

Did you know the number of work keys you're given follows an inverted bell curve when plotted against your importance to your employer? Janitors and directors get ALL the keys, mid-managers just get one or two.

Me, I've got too bloody much on my keyring. 2 car keys (one with a remote built in, the other with an accessory remote--that's the bulk of the stuff right there), 3 work keys, apartment, mailbox, house I'm trying to sell, library card, grocery card. That's not really all that much relative to others, I know, but I used to like keeping my keyring in my pocket.

Just the car key and remote. Back in the day when I was a warehouseman, I had so many keys that they poked holes in all my pants pockets and jacked up my car ignition. These days I just carry the car key.

KEYS Car key, car remote starter, house key front door, house key garage, house key for mom and mother-in-law houses, work key
OTHER STUFF Rabies tag from my childhood puppy whose been long gone (miss her), too many shopper cards, and a very large carabiner.
I put the carabiner on my ring after I left my keys on the train a while back. What a hassle that was to get them back. Not to mention that my Nissan key has a chip built in and is nauseatingly expensive to replace. At this point the key is worth more than the car itself! :)

I've got a car key/ remote, house key, room key, the key to my parents house and the key to my guitar case. Also a few membership card things, only the grocery one really gets used.

Side note, after typing "key" so many times, the word looks incredibly odd to me now.

Y card, various store cards, caribiner clip (only way I don't lose my keys is to clip them to something), key to my house, 2 keys to my folks' house, key to my boyfriend's house, key to my bike lock. I don't have a car, so no car keys.

I got rid of all the "huh?" keys. I have my car key on a clip so I can remove it when handing my car key to a repair or car wash place, and it allows me to clip my keys to a belt loop or purse. The four keys that operate locks in my house and the key to the padlock on the front gate and dog run. My office key and the little keys to the two luggage locks I use to secure my office cabinet and fridge. And a tiny, key-sized squeeze flashlight that I need to open the gate padlocks in the dark. Nothing decorative or surplus on there any more.

@dergage: So did the original titanium plates not hold up to the 2nd break, or were they replaced because of your 4 yrs of growth?

And my keyring: 2 house, 2 car, PO Box, safe deposit box, screwdriver, quarter with a hole drilled in it (I got as change...I didn't do it), and my dog's ID tag from a long missed buddy.

key rings: discount card key ring with numerous tags from towns we've been in once (momentos), old car key rings for the cars that are just sitting hoping to be sold, actual used key ring (front, side, and back door to my house, front door to my dad and mil houses, car door and ignition key for primary vehicle, front side and ignition key to third vehicle, door key to second and fourth vehicle). key ring for outdoor locked stuff (shed key, back gate key, ladder key).

i only carry the actual used key ring with me. i have a latch on it because i bruise easily if i put it in my pocket (hard to explain that set of bruises to a doctor). also these are my keys: hubby has own sets, and there is this bin of extra keys to stuff sitting in the back room.

Quark Mini 123 LED flashlight.

It's a little big, but it's a great light. One of their AAA lights are probably better for most people to carry on their keychain.

I have only 4 keys: car key, apartment key, laundry room key, mailbox key, and an amazing Tote Le Monde fob. And 8 of the discount cards. I like keeping my keychain small so it can go in my pocket comfortably.

http://www.totelemonde.com is incredibly expensive here in the USA, but Tote Le Monde is produced in Cochabamba, Bolivia, and they have a store at the facility with MUCH lower prices.

A plastic "silver" bullet. TSA used to get their knickers in a wad every time I went through security and forgot I had it on set of spare car keys I use when I travel. "You guys, it's a piece of PLASTIC. What am I going to do? THROW it at the cockpit door?"

I used to have a miniature 1" plastic Glock, but my husband swiped it. He received a stern lecture from a TSA agent because of it. Going through the security, the agent pulled it out of the bucket for spare change & keys. My husband was puzzled as to why the agent was so concerned about his car keys. It dawned on him as stood there watching her turn the little plastic fob this way and that, holding up to the light she thought the fob might be a true threat.
After a few minutes of watching this performance he leaned across the conveyor belt & said "You know, if you drop it in a bowl of water, it gets this big," and held up his hands to show just how big. The lady was not amused.

@beelzebubba29: I don't really know how I did it, but I broke the bone under both the plates. As far as I could tell from the x-rays, it was a clean break under the 3rd screw (of 6) on the radius and a clean break under the 4th screw (of 5) on the ulna.

The cool part is that when I went in for surgery the second time, I had had 4 years of bone growth around the plates. The surgeon said she had to chisel parts of my bone away to get them out.

Door key, mail key, access fob, and bottle opening. I keep 'em hooked on a carabiner, because that's how cool I am.

I actually have 3 keyrings now.

1 is for work and is finally now just two keys (the boss had all the stores put on a master lock, so one key opens all of them!) I used to have four as I work at four of the stores. The second key is for our padlocks.

I have one just for the discount cards, library card, etc. It took up an entire keyring, and it was just too much to carry around.

Lastly, I have a keyring with just my car key on it. The remote unlock-er keeps killing batteries, so I gave up. It has a generic keychain from my mechanic.

However, I have a huge keychain collection...which I think I actually need to get rid of, after I keep just a couple to put on my keyrings.

Car key w/remote, front door keys to My house, uncles house, and my brother's house 1100mi away, and a key to a padlock i haven't used in...6 years..., and an old NCR "s" key for the registers @ work, which no one really needs now, as we went biometric back in '09ish, just keep it there for sentimental reasons.

None, normally. I count on my boyfriend to have his house keys on him and be home before or at the same time as me and I count on my mom to have signed up for every reward card under her real phone number. So far, I have not been wrong.

But when I do remember my keys I just have my front door key, mail key and my parents' house key in Texas.

House key, random luggage lock keys, a small number of reward cards. Nothing particularly interesting.

Since we're not counting club/membership/discount cards, you have eliminated most of my keyring.

Other than that I have a lanyard from my college (that way I can quickly verify whether or not my keys are in my pocket and not think that the lump in my pocket is my keys, only to find out later that it is my cell phone), my car key, and a keyring with nothing on it...I wonder how that got there...
