Uber Reveals The Most Forgotten Items People Leave Behind In Their Rides

Uber released its 2020 Lost & Found Index on Tuesday, which tracks everything from the most commonly forgotten items in cars, to other trends that the ride-sharing service has observed.

It’s an interesting breakdown, but before we dive down the rabbit hole, there are a few “discoveries” that should come as no surprise.

After pouring over their findings, Uber can confirm that riders are “most forgetful on Fridays and Saturdays, and late at night,” with 11 p.m. and midnight representing the time when people are most likely to leave behind an item.

While Uber can’t specify whether or not those stats are related to alcohol consumption, it doesn’t take a genius to see a correlation there.

Meanwhile, the major three possessions you make sure you have before walking out of your front door—phone, wallet, and keys—are also, unsurprisingly, Uber’s top three most commonly forgotten items.

According to the 2020 Uber Lost & Found Index, the 10 most commonly forgotten items are:

  1. Phone
  2. Wallet
  3. Keys
  4. Backpack / bag / purse
  5. Headphones
  6. Clothing
  7. Glasses
  8. Vape / e-cig
  9. ID / license / passport
  10. Water bottle
