The 30 weirdest objects forgotten in Ubers in the past year
According to Uber’s latest Lost and Found Index, the items most often left by passengers are roughly what you’d expect: phones, keys, wallets, headphones, backpacks, water bottles, and more. .
That said, not all runners are so predictable. Most remember taking their 22 Bundt Cakes with them when they got out of the vehicle, but one person didn’t. Another passenger accidentally abandoned a catheter.
No matter what you have left behind, your Uber driver will help you collect it. Watch the video below to find out how, and read the list of 30 particularly bizarre objects Uber riders have descended without.
1. A human tooth
“It was in my pocket,” the person reported, “and appears to have fallen.”
2. Several Bundt cakes and some macaroni and cheese
To be precise, it was “22 Bundt Cakes and a Pan of Mac and Cheese”.
3. A bulletproof vest
The passenger listed it as an “FBI bulletproof vest.” Forgetting your rescue gear in the back of an Uber doesn’t seem like the mark of a big FBI agent, but we’re no experts.
4. A corset
A “nude corset”. Practical, if not comfortable.
5. An ankle monitor
It was just “part of an ankle monitor”. Has this rider recently escaped house arrest? We may never know.
6. A painting by Kate Middleton
In fact, they were two paintings: a “large painting of Kate Middleton and a small painting of the Grim Reaper”. What else do you need to know?
7. A dinosaur costume and a knife
The person described the items as “a green dinosaur Halloween costume and a knife needed for the job.” It is not known what the job was or if the person will do it disguised as a green dinosaur.
8. A unicorn tail and a piñata
Maybe the green dinosaur and the unicorn were heading to the same party.
9. An autographed image of “Beauty and the Beast”
An unlucky Disney fan has lost “a framed photo signed ‘Beauty and the Beast’ in a plastic case.”
10. A Disney World popcorn bucket
Another Disney fan lost his popcorn bucket. “Isn’t that just a trash can?” ” you ask. Not for some – Disney World popcorn buckets are collectibles.
11. Old skates
The blades were left with “Christmas plates and a cookie jar”. Suppose there were Christmas cookies in the jar.
12. A fur cover of a knee scooter
“Because I broke my foot,” the passenger explained helpfully.
13. A toilet seat and a lemon-shaped welcome sign
“A toilet seat and a lemon-shaped welcome sign with a blue ribbon on it,” the person explained. Maybe both were housewarming gifts.
14. A purple beanie
It was a “little beanie with purple hair,” to be exact.
15. Toiletries and potatoes
Someone left behind his “bath set and a sack of potatoes”.
16. A large amount of frozen meat
“Frozen meat, a lot,” the person wrote. Meat and fish products are forgotten at Ubers more often than you might think: Other lost items included ‘rabbit legs’, ‘fresh shrimp’, a pound of smoked salmon, ” a platter. sushi “and” a cooler full of fish. “
17. Raw chicken
This meat deserves its own entree as it was left with “20 pounds of salt”. OK, Papa Ingalls.
18. A scary cane
A “black cane with a handle in the shape of a skull”. Alright, Lucius Malfoy.
19. A catheter
We don’t have more details for this one, which is probably for the best.
20. Lingerie (we think)
Someone left behind “special Victoria’s Secret articles”.
21. A neck brace
“My neck brace and my diary,” reports one person. Maybe the story behind the neck brace is told in the newspaper.
22. Medical scissors
More precisely: “hospital scissors”. Sterilized thoroughly before the next procedure, we hope.
23. False eyelashes
“False eyelashes and dish soap.” The most iconic combination since peanut butter and jelly.
24. An oxygen tank
The tank was not alone; this rider also forgot his “horned headband”.
25. A mannequin head
No word on whether this caused a scream from the Uber driver.
26. A birth certificate
It was “inside a box of UGG earmuffs”. Where everyone keeps their birth certificate.
27. A crystal chandelier
The Phantom of the Opera is back.
28. A prosthetic leg
Someone probably wasn’t too happy with this one.
The passenger said he forgot “the wine and my edibles”, no doubt disappointing the friends they were going to visit.
30. The ashes of the beloved animal
“My dog’s ashes,” the person wrote. Unknown container.
