    Of course, I never wear mine--my keys are always in my bag or on my desk; I rarely need them once I'm in my room.

    Hate wearing them but have to keep one handy for entering buildings, making copies, logging in and if I lose it, it'll cost me $25 to replace.

    Here's the one I bought recently and the lanyard was throwing in for free(got lucky).

    I admit that I loved my Vera Bradley lanyard, and I put a retractable key holder on it for the one key you absolutely needed 20 times a day. Now, we have to wear break away lanyards, and I hate them. Once they have come apart it happens with increasing frequency until they are useless. A couple of people have crazy glued theirs together, and I might consider that. The sad thing is that if I am going to do that, I will be thinking the whole time that I could be wearing something I liked instead of something I don't like in the least. Oh well. . .

    I wear a Vera Bradley lanyard as well. It was a little pricey for just a lanyard, but I figured if it's something I have to wear every single day I at least want it to be something pretty. It's also really lightweight, which is nice.

    One of my co--workers wears hers going down her back. Solves that problem.

    I never thought about it, but wouldn't that just get in the way even more?

    We're required to keep our lanyard with keys with us at all times. The doors remained locked all day, and you should always have your fob with you to get in the building.

    The first one was a cute one that our principal gave us with the school name and colors. Our sister school also had one with their name and colors. Then we started worrying about if someone stole them or they got lost. Then people would know which school they belonged to. Luckily if you know they're gone, you just send the VP a text and she can deactivate them.

    I've bought a few at Wal-Mart that detached so you didn't have to take it off to open the door. My dad has also made me a few out of paracord. Very cool in the eyes of 2nd graders. I just bought a necklace one that was longer and more sturdy than those I've seen in the past. The ones with the gems can be irritating to some people, and the gems will fall off after several months.

    Other teachers in the building have just made their own on the sewing machine out of scraps of fabric.

    I usually throw mine around to my back if it's in the way or annoying me. It never got in the way, but sometimes when I leaned back in my chair on them I would choke myself slightly.

    I liked the Vera chain lanyards but they don't seem to carry them anymore.

    I just ordered a lanyard and ID case from Vera. I can't wait til it gets here! I don't wear jewelry of any kind, but a lanyard for my keys is a must-have.

    I bought the id holders for all my daughter's teacher last year on clearance. They loved them and I got them for less than $5 each. I got lanyards for my teaching partners and they all loved them. I try to catch stuff on sale.

    Many of the teachers at my school have lanyards from Origami Owl. They are definitely on the jewelry side of the spectrum.
