My employee pass lanyard snapped into 2. You can see the remnants in the picture. I have had it for so long that my cards were stuck to it and had to be cut out.
Since it is not politically correct to use my old Citibank ones, I decided not to be cheap and treat myself to a nice branded leather version. After scouring all the usual brands, I finally bought a Prada gold coloured leather lanyard which is one of the cheapest. Who knew a piece of leather could cost that much. Since the store only had the display piece left, intuitively, it has to be the best value for money.
