Pocket Usage

Oh sure, there’ve been lots of memes going around asking what’s in your pocket – and I’ll ask that, too. But my question is, which is your dominant pocket?

Because I’m right-handed I naturally choose my right pockets – jacket and jeans. But my house keys always end up in a front pocket, and it’s usually the left pocket.

It’s funny too, because I really have to “designate” where things go. I need a badge to get in and out of my building at work, and I forgot the thing on a few occasions because it was in my front right pocket of my pants – which I never used for anything before. I still have to make a conscious effort to check that pocket before laundry day.

I’m curious about your pocket usage. Do tell.
