back to the chain gang

I lost my wallet this morning, somehow. I probably didn't actually lose it, since I just canceled both my cards. Once I cancel my cards I always find the wallet, but I'd rather get new cards than deal with what follows when I don't cancel the cards. This is the last in a string of near-losses over several months. No more of this bullshit for me. I switched away from using a chain wallet in college because I thought it would look more professional. I've left or lost my wallet dozens of times since then. Every time I make a change in my life towards form and away from function I lose; I'm going back to a chain wallet. What could happen, would it affect my stellar career? LOL.

One thing to try is to make the wallet thick and fat by keeping business cards in it. It makes it hard to get the wallet out of your pants pocket, which means it won't fall out anywhere. A side plus is it's nigh impossible to pickpocket without you feeling it being pulled.

Doesn't wrapping a couple of thickish rubber bands around it also increase the friction?

These are good, and I've tried both with good results. Unfortunately my old brick-style wallet gave me all kinds of back pain due to essentially giving me temporary scoliosis when I sat down, and the surgical rubber band I used really dug in as well. I suppose I'm really sensitive to butthurt.

Also a lot of the problem is I will simply set it on something and forget to pick it back up again. I don't think they make rubber bands strong enough to keep my brain from scattering.
