This question shook me off my seat when i heard this addressed to me in one of the interviews I had lately. I was left with no other option at the time I was asked that.I would've answered:: my computer or my cellphone,but it was discouraged. Hmmmm back to basics then ,eh? Scribbling down being one of my fave past time,when not in front of the computer, I gave a quick reply : my BALLPEN and my PENCIL! Why? was the follow-up.. Oh, well, even with the uprise of technology these days, we still NEED a ballpen and a pencil--almost anytime and anywhere we go..Simply TO WRITE DOWN WHAT WE NEED TO remember or sign on something we need to agree on or to simply express ourselves! brrrr. a VERY simple question! For me at that time ,the level of difficulty in answering was a real bummer. I banged my head on the wall after that interview. My mind was too complicated to answer that very simple question! But as I look back now on how i answered with my ballpen and my pencil as the most useful equipment to me which aint the pc or the cp...I guess I did well.No ballpen or no pencil on hand is like going to war without loading your rifle.*wink* **smile** If that question was thrown your way,what would be your most unique answer??

yes,that is true,computer and cellphone can be used with the electricity so if there is no electricity you can not sue both of them,so you were right that the most equipment that most useful is ball pen and even that would be my answer because anywhere you go you need ball pen.

My car allows me to go a lot farther and faster than I could walk. Miami is huge, and often great distances must be traversed. Without the car, I'd be stuck. Our public transportation doesn't seem to go to any of the places I need to go. I could get to some places with several hours of transferring, but I can't get to work from my house at all!

Hi! In my case, the most important is my set of keys. I never lost any key in my entire life and I always keep them safe but within reach. That's how important my keys are to me. Next would be a pen (and cellphone)and my checkbook. Nevertheless, nothing beats my keys! I think I will go nuts without them.

I would have to say the coffee pot, that's equipment right. I sure couldn't go a day without coffee and get anything done.
