Uber’s 2022 Lost and Found report features offender tots, teeth, and slime

SAN FRANCISCO — Uber has released a list of items left behind in cars by passengers, and it includes some really bizarre things, like tater tots and grandma’s teeth.

The ridesharing company released its 2022 Lost and Found Index on June 3 near the end of Mercury retrograde, which astrologers believe influences forgetfulness, Uber said. The index is based on false reports submitted by passengers.

Uber’s list of the 10 most forgotten items will surprise no one. It includes phones, wallets, cameras, keys, e-cigarettes, and other common things you might carry in your pocket.

Where things get weird is with the list of the 50 Most Unique Lost Items. Believe it or not, the passengers left behind 500 grams of caviar, a bucket of slime, Bernie Sanders’ fanny pack, 40 chicken nuggets, a pet turtle and an urn containing a family member’s ashes.

Some items are found repeatedly. According to Uber, 40 drivers left behind CPAP machines, 20 lost their gold or diamond-encrusted dental grids and more than 50 left behind jerseys for sports fans.

Austin, Texas ranked first for most forgetful city two years in a row. Phoenix, Arizona, and Atlanta, Georgia were also on the list. The most forgetful days are Saturday and Sunday, and the most forgetful time is early evening, Uber said.

“People have been more forgetful than ever this year. As the world gets back on its feet, we look forward to helping return these lost items, no matter how unique,” said Lexi Levin Mitchel, senior communications manager at Uber CNN.

Now in its sixth year, the annual report aims to remind riders how to get lost items back with the Uber app.

A feature in the app allows drivers to report items as lost and contact drivers to return them. The service costs $15 and covers the driver’s time and labor.

Of course, it’s up to the passengers to decide if Tater Tots are worth the price.
