    So I was playing yugioh with a friend of mine (unrelated details ftw!), and we got to talking about how a man's wallet is one of our essentials in life, and how we've both had ours since before we even carried them around & don't plan on changing that any time soon.

    Now, I suppose we could adapt if needed, but other ones just wouldn't feel right, regardless of their physical makeup.


    ... so TFW, what's really in your wallet?

    Haha, my dad's is the same way, but don't you like... always find yourself sitting or at least leaning on it? It's probably got more to do with the pants than anything (he says that it's never under his ass), but yeah.

    Also to KA, you're definitely right. The bitch definitely needs to chill.

    Previous to the one I bought on monday, I had it for about four or five years. My wife kept nagging me about how ghetto it looks after the years of use. I found one on rebate from 50$ to 1.50$. hehehehe. I think that's only reason why I got it. Adjustment was fine. she put pictures of my dad and my daughter in it. The one I have now doesn't even have any place to put money in it which is perfect since I never carry any cash. I don't know if I can call it a wallet. Its more like a card holder.

    Just for the sake of asking, how would this have played out if the roles were reversed? Like, if you were to point out that her purse looked too ghetto, and then follow up by assigning the slots for her?

    Broken in wallet > new wallet

    Only thing that usually needs replaced is those card sleeve things.

    You gotta be kidding me. Last time I bought a purse for her, I was down almost half a G. Its hard to find a good wallet but for the quality and price, I caved in.

    Since my birthday in January. I hope this one lasts longer. My best friends gave it to me as a present. It's real leather and has MURASAME written on it in an oriental styled font.

    lol, I've had my generic black leather wallet for about 5 years. definitely butt-creased lol, kinda like a good couch cussion.

    In regards to the wife ghetto purse comment- yeah, never had to say that because I'm pretty sure my wife gets a new purse every season (sometimes more if there a special event or something). If I told her that it would basically give her the go-ahead to make it rain!

    I don't. It's not good for your posture when sitting on your wallet, you can get spinal and back disorder from this. And the wallet is easier to steel.

    I put it in my jacket or in the front pocket.

    My first wallet I had and used for about fifteen years. I had to replace it when it eventually crumbled to bits. My current wallet I've had for about ten years.
    I can't see doing that would be good for anything. For one I'd be concerned with bending or breaking the various cards I have in my wallet. Also I'd imagine it would be uncomfortable to sit on. And easier to steal. Or the action of walking may even push the wallet up and out of the back pocket. My wallet has always gone in one of my side pockets. If I'm in a crowd of people and I happen to have a large wodge of cash on me for some reason I can easily put my hand in my pocket and hold onto my wallet so no-one can steal it. If I wandered around with my hand in my back pocket for the same reason I reckon people might think I'm fruity or have a sore asscheek.

    How do people keep their loose change? Since I'm afear of holes in my pockets mine goes into my pocket in a plastic bankers money bag.

    A pal of mine doesn't seem to care about his money at all. I've lost count of the amount of times he's pulled crumpled loose notes from his back pocket to pay for something and I've had to pick up other notes that have fallen to the ground at the same time. People have bought him wallets but he just won't use them.

    Well, Tripredacus, you got me beat --- I don't carry a wallet. Cash in my pocket.
