Uber cars and subways are like magnets for your most precious objects. Leaving an important item behind is something that’s happened to most of us. If we think a little we can recall the moment vividly: stepping out of the car in the middle of a snowy day, saying your goodbyes to the driver, patting yourself down to check that you’ve got all your stuff with you, and then the dread when you realize that your Uber just drove off with your phone, wallet and scarf.
A couple of years ago, if you left something in a cab or a subway you could just start mourning that loss right away. There was no way in hell that you were ever going to get that back. Uber recently introduced a Lost & Found index that lists all the lost items people have forgotten about and the cities where it happened. There are a lot of phones and wallets on the list, you know the usual, but there’s also a lot of random shit.
The Uber Lost & Found index is divided into different categories that range from most forgettable items, which logically include phones, wallets and IDs, to the days where people are most forgetful, (Sundays obviously) to the weirdest items left behind. Which are very weird, check these out:
- A lobster
- Hot Cheetos
- Wedding Outfit
- Potted Plant
- Smoke Machine
- Valuable Nordic walking poles
Thanks for that juicy information Uber! We have so many questions.
If you recognize any of these items, maybe you’re their original owner. Uber has thought of that too, prepping this video that lists the necessary steps you need to take so you can get your stuff back.
