I carry my GC at all times, not because I have to, but because I often go to Canada on a whim.

I'd quite like to go to canada on a whim. Unfortunately its quite pricey for me and also a long way.

Additonally, please take this for apologies in advance for any retarded polls or stupid comments from me for the next few weeks, I broke my ankle and am laid up in bed on oxycodone. The drugs and boredom are a bad combination

Only time I ever carry my green card is when I travel out of the country, usually UK, though I did forget it once when I went there - Expensive mistake!

I once forgot my GC when I took my Mrs to England on honeymoon. Didn't realise it until I was on my way back. Duh.

They have no sense of humour.

i don't have mine anymore... got my 2nd passport in July 2000.

But when I still had one, I'd carry it with my US driving licence.

I keep it on me now, did just leave it lying around home, but some twonker asked to see it, the twonker happened to be a coast guard/border patrol person...they randomly mill around where we use to live in the holiday time to catch people bringing drugs down from canada or guns across the border...

I didn't exactly, I was refused entry onto the flight, had to go to London from Manchester to the US embassy and get a letter of entry permit or something. I mistakenly thought I would be able to enter under the visa waiver program but the airline were having none of that. I ended up having to buy another flight.
