It used to be all about always having a dime with you.
Emergency Dime for Call
I used to carry a small knife with my keys. I went through a period where I forgot to take it off the ring and tried to catch a flight. twice...
I wonder if some people carry things on the off chance they can whip something out of a pocket... When I travel, I will keep a Zebralight with me. I will admit I have felt pretty savvy to whip it out to help a B&B owner reset a fuse, a couple navigate an icy foot bridge, and three ladies inspect a fuse box in a dark alley.
I have it with me because sometimes it helps me to not trip or step in a puddle and it makes a nice constant light source for pictures of things within a few feet. I don't carry it with me at home.
