For those who aren’t aware, my day job is with the .gov. This means a lot of my EDC is not allowed. That being said, most people ignore/don’t notice my Leatherman clipped to my pocket. My colleague and I went to do training at another office, and the security politely asked me to put my Leatherman back in my car, since it’s not allowed. Of course, I complied with a polite request.

Colleague I can’t believe he made you take that back out to the car.

Me First, he’s right and it’s a prohibited item. Second, at least he let me put it out in the car and didn’t confiscate my $80 pocket knife. Third, it’s not like that’s the only knife I have on me.
