Sure, forgetting your keys or phone in the backseat of an Uber is admissible. But what about an 8-week-old Chihuahua or a handmade cat puppet?
Uber released its annual list of Lost and Found items that have been forgotten during rides. Including everything from headphones (we can relate) to a Lego championship wrestling belt (can’t say we’ve left any of those behind before).
The ride-share company compiled a list of 50 of the most “outrageous” items people have left behind, and let’s say we have questions. We’ll never know that a Harry Potter fan or possibly a Hogwarts student left behind a Harry Potter magic wand.
Another passenger, who we can only assume was a new mom deprived of sleep, forgot a breast pump with breast milk. Someone else forgot a black-and-white tuxedo meant for a small dog, and we can only hope that it wasn’t for the 8-week-old Chihuahua that was also left behind. Otherwise, a very naked puppy missed out on a very important engagement.
A piece of parchment paper with some sap and a fog machine was also on the list of forgotten items.
According to Uber, passengers are most forgetful on Saturdays and Sundays and between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. (makes sense 👀). New Year’s Day and Oct. 29 (early Halloween celebrations, anyone?) were the days that the most people forgot something in their Uber in 2018.
Southern states appeared to be the most forgetful. According to Uber, out of the top 10 “Most Forgetful Cities,” eight were in the South.
