I stand to pee, after lifting the seat; I respond to "Hey Mister"..

Phone. Although I remember driving over the Golden Gate Bridge in the Fall of 81 in My Mom's Buick Regal™ w/the end of the phone attached to the cord. It just didn't seem 'cool' when everyone and their grandmother had one..I just recently got a cell phone and only take it with Me if I go fishing. My reasons: I worked Narcotics and had to work w/"Confidential Informants" and the majority were using meth. and NOT a clock/watch/sun dial and would call at ALL hours of the day and whisper 'they know I told....' As soon as I got rotated back to Patrol, I gave them back the phone, first thing.

I don't remember ever driving by a pay phone and seeing a long line for folks waiting to use it but all of a sudden those calls became important.

1978 CJ5 with a 304. It runs on hopes and prayers.

I like those kinds of cars.
Always an adventure.
If you take it down over a bank through the trees and into the creek.... oh well!

Male mid forties.

Losing any of these things would drive me crazy.
If I lost my wallet I'd lose my licence and debit card.. huge pains in the asses to replace.

If I lost my keys I would be stuck on my mountain.. with no ambulance service or local police dept that is not an option.

I don't have a landline or cable(my phone is my internet) my phone is my contact to the outside world and my closest neighbors ..like if I got hurt on the property and could not drive..

I guess..knowing the consequences of not having the other two I would choose my wallet...

But I don't have the option of my wallet because I have a car..So

Wow this is tough..

I guess my phone.. because if I was in trouble and my neighbors weren't home I would like the option to at least try and drag myself to my car and at least make it to the paved road...

Respectfully,
~meathead

I wouldn't want to lose my purse. It has everything from my wallet, snacks for the kids, nursing pads....perhaps a kitchen sink. Everything I need when I leave the house. Never lost it before, but I'm sure I would be upset. I've never owned a cell phone. I did however lose our home phone right after kid 2 was born. It was in the fridge. I have no excuse other than sleep deprivation.
My husband says the most infuriating thing to lose is the remote.

Phone.

If I have my car I can drive to the phone store and get another one.

If I have my phone, I can call a locksmith.

Oh, I am male and dislike cats intensely.

Keep the phone. I need my truck to run over cats while Butcherguy is waiting for his locksmith.

20 years ago I would have told him to get up off his ass and change the channel..

But nowadays if you lose the remote most flat screens don't have the option.. you lose the remote and it's all good while game of thrones is on..But then it ends and your stuck watching ballers and Bill Maher until you pass out of boredom....

Phone, I can always call an Uber (love that German name) or get someone to open my Volkswagen, this way I wouldn't be standing around like a statue waiting to get toppled.

You lose!

Female here.

You can take both. I carry everything important attached to a little wallet attached to my car keys and they are designed to be carried independent of my bag. I usually don't carry my bag with me. I carry my keys with one loop of a key ring around my finger like a ring.

So long as I have my keys, I have what I need and I don't need either phone or bag.

I'll bet there are many people who would rather lose their virginity than any of those items.

That is a real Jeep. Runs on hopes and prayers, but the 304 roares like a lion.

I have a serious problem with you needing your truck to run over cats!

Right. It seems like a bit of literal overkill when a car would work just fine.
