We’ve all gotten into Uber’s in less than coherent states, as a result of that we’ve all undoubtedly left our possessions in the back seat as we wander into the night.
The good folks at Uber have put together a lost and found index for all items that were left in Uber’s during 2018, and let me tell ya there have been some bloody juicy finds.
Right off the bat, we’re apparently much more forgetful between the 10pm and 1am on a Saturday/Sunday, which obviously coincides with all your mates piling into an Uber you drunkenly agreed to pay for.
Mobile phones were top of the list for most common lost items, which is fairly unsurprising considering that they travel with us everywhere. However, this year vapes/e-cigs managed to sneak into the top 10, which might mean users are indeed trying to “forget” that they ever made that purchase in the first place.
The entirety of the unique lost items list is honestly a hoot and a half, and I strongly encourage you to have a gander at it. Here’s a selection of personal favourites that some people somehow were able to forget in the back of a stranger’s car.
- 8 week old coffee-colored Chihuahua
- Black faux fur neck cuff in a size large
- A photo of a New Years kiss
- 6 chicken tenders from 7 Eleven

And if you find yourself in the tricky postion of having lost an item in an Uber, you can always tap the “Your Trips” section of the app and follow the prompts from there, which also works if a driver has decided to take you on the scenic route home.
