Weekdays 3p-7p

I do not use ride share services often, but it is my fear of leaving something behind…

Uber released two lists of things that were left behind in some of their driver’s cars. The first list is the obvious things people leave behind, and the top of the list were phones. I am half surprised half no that surprised because we can’t leave our house without our phone. How awkward would that be trying to reach out to your Uber driver with no phone.

According to the ride sharing app, Uber riders are most forgetful on Saturdays and Sundays, and late at night – between 11pm and 1am.

The 10 Most Commonly Forgotten Items:

  1. Phone
  2. Camera
  3. Wallet
  4. Keys
  5. Purse / Backpack
  6. Clothing
  7. Glasses
  8. Headphones
  9. Vape / E-cig
  10. ID / License

Now we get to the funny, “I can’t believe they left that” list. This list was released by Uber and I can’t help but laugh!
