I never remember to bring earplugs to the server room. This is my own fault.

Actually, your server room ought to be providing them.  Workplace safety and OSHA.  Bring it up with your shop steward.

They might, now that you mention it… I’m a rare visitor.

I keep a set in my book bag, largely because I tend to wear them at work and while commuting.  But still.

What always impresses me is yawning in a DC with earplugs in – how much sound enters through my mouth.

I keep ear plugs with me for travel. Once I was in a NYC hotel with walls so thin that I could hear the person in the next room passing wind. Always be prepared!

I have four pair in my overnight kit and usually two or three pair in my computer bag. But I just repacked into a different computer bag and can’t remember what pocket I put them in! :-)
