How many times have you travelled in a cab, gotten out in a hurry only to realise that you have left behind your wallet or keys? Then begins the hassle of reaching out to the driver or the cab company, and waiting until you get your stuff back.

Well, ride hailing giant Uber is a little too familiar with this exercise. Uber released its Lost and Found Index 2020 which maps the cities where users forgot the most number of things, and also the most unique lost requests.

“Backed by rider insight and captivating data, the Lost and Found Index aims to educate riders in a fun yet informative manner about Uber’s in-app options available to them at the tap of a button, in case they lose or forget something in their Uber during their trip,” said the company in a statement.

With no surprises, the most commonly forgotten items in an Uber were phones, cameras, bags, wallets, keys etc. But the report’s list of ‘most unique lost items’ definitely had a lot of surprises like an acrylic artificial tooth, kids tricycle, Michelle Obama’s book ‘Becoming’.

Uber said the most forgetful days of the week are Thursdays and Fridays, with the afternoon being the peak time when users tend to leave their things behind.
