Where do you keep your USB?

USB is a convenient device. Small and light. At the same time can carry important files. It is easier to copy on a USB and use it to copy to another computer when there is no network or a painfully slow network. But where do you keep your USB?

Recently, I saw a Tamil movie where an Ukrainian girl hangs the USB on a chain around her neck. It not only provides safe house for the USB but also gives the protagonist to flirtatiously use his fingers around her neck. Well, I haven't found anyone hanging USBs around their neck except in movies.

Take the case of my young friend. He keeps the USB on a key chain. The key chain contains other important keys, his house key being one among them. The trouble with such an arrangement is when you are leaving work in a hurry. You want to copy files in a hurry. You connect USB, copy files, juggle with million other things and run out of the door. You did everything except disconnect the USB.

This is a likely scenario. Imagine there is a bridge. In local parlance, a bridge means a working day that is sandwiched between a weekend and a holiday. If you take the bridge (translates to a day off), you have a long weekend of 4 days. My young friend did this mistake on such an occasion.

Luckily, the USB was still attached to the computer when he returned back to work.

    1. Thank you. Hope you learnt something from my young friend's experience. :)

  3. Convenient. But what if he misplaces the whole keybunch?

    1. Well, what I described is similar to what you mentioned. In simple words, he is in big trouble when he misplaces the whole keybunch. :)
