What's in your work bag?
* Jimi wallet (one debit card, some notes)
* packed lunch box
* (plus phone and keys in pocket, bike helmet on head, jacket)
Every day in winter:
* waterproof trousers, unless I’m wearing them
Monday in and Friday out:
* work ‘shoes’
* student work to be marked
I don’t like carrying much, so I have computer, pens, etc. at home and at work, and my bike lock lives at work. It’s only a 15 minute ride each way, so I don’t bother with special bike clothes or getting changed/washed at work (other than my shoes).Posted 3 years agojaffejofferMember
right now ive got my iPad, that Guy Martin book, another book called Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, a copy of Dirt magazine, some cheese moments and a packet of wet wipes to ensure sufficient sanitation from catastrophic abominations of the armatage shanks, a toothbrush and my headphones.Posted 3 years agoCountZeroMember
My work courier bag weighs a ton, I’m really not sure I want to go digging around in its murky depths, but there’s a load of pens; a couple of magnifying glasses; a plastic bag full of multitools*; bottle of Superglue; a zip-up case with various cables, connectors and my iPod Classic, and a spare set of headphones; assorted zip-ties; ibuprofen tablets, hay fever tablets, and painkilling gels…Posted 3 years ago
There’s probably more junk lurking around in various pockets, but I can’t be arsed to go and look!
*Its surprising how often I get asked if I’ve got an Allen key or other tool around…danielgrovesMember
