Uber Releases List of 50 Strangest Things Left Behind by Riders


(WFLA) – Have you ever grabbed an Uber, arrived at your destination and all of a sudden realized you left something in the car that’s now long gone? 

Leaving something behind happens to the best of us. Most of the time it’s just your phone, wallet or keys. But have you ever wondered what else Uber drivers find in their cars at the end of the night?

You don’t have to wonder anymore. On Tuesday, Uber released a list of the 50 “most unique” items that have been lost in an Uber.

Items on the list include a full set of 18K gold teeth, a mannequin, an Elvis cape, a professional grade hula hoop, a pack of hair and a brown brush shaped like a foot, a fog machine, a LEGO championship wrestling belt, a shopping cart, a special pizza costume and a Harry Potter magic wand.

It may be hard to believe, but several animals also made the list. An 8-week-old Chihuahua, a full fish tank with fish and water, a bird and a salmon head were all listed as things riders left behind.

Several animal-related items also landed on the list. Those include a tuxedo for a small dog, a cheer skirt with a lion head, deer antlers and a welding helmet, a small handmade cat puppet and a small plush toy of a cat eating pizza.

There were also several unique food items on the list including two packs of Italian sausage and a Thanksgiving ham, six chicken tenders from 7-Eleven, 10 pounds of pulled pork and 10 pounds of pulled chicken, Red Lobster takeout and two pieces of wedding cake.

Uber also released the ten most common items people forget. A phone is the most common, followed by camera, wallet, keys, purse or backpack, clothing, glasses, headphones, E-cigs and IDs or licenses.

The report says Uber riders are most forgetful late at night on Saturdays and Sundays – usually between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. The most forgetful days of the year in 2018 were New Year’s Day and Oct. 29, just a few days before Halloween.

You can read the full lost and found report on Uber’s website.
