On board Uber, lost and found items are the order of the day, even if some of them are decidedly unusual. Taking a look at Uber’s stats it’s interesting (and sometimes even hilarious) to find that users just forget about everything. Musical instruments, urns with pet ashes and bizarre pizza-shaped costumes these are just some of the unusual items left on board the brand’s vehicles.

They follow in the ranking – which takes into account the last 12 months – wallet, clothes, glasses, bags, keys, earphones and personal documents. The statistic becomes even more interesting if we note that on Tuesdays there is a peak of loss of earphones, while on Wednesday there is a peak of loss of headphones. On Monday and Friday, on the other hand, we tend to lose our glasses and on Sundays our house keys. The most forgetful countries are Argentina, Brazil and Croatia.
