Every year, Uber‘s Lost & Found Index provides a fascinating glimpse into the items we leave behind in our haste, and 2024’s roundup does not disappoint. This eighth annual roundup not only showcases the usual suspects like clothing, bags and headphones, but also unveils a treasure trove of the unexpected and the outright peculiar. Among the trove of forgotten items, a frontal hair toupee, hot sauce paired with a breathalyzer, and a Beyoncé fold up fan top the list of the 50 most unique finds, alongside emotional losses like dignity and memory that make an appearance in this year’s list.

Miami has ascended to the top as the most “forgetful” city, up from sixth place last year, with Los Angeles and Atlanta following closely behind. The index amusingly reveals that phones have taken a backseat, falling to the sixth spot on the list of frequently forgotten items. 

For those who’ve ever left something behind, Uber provides a glimmer of hope with detailed instructions on retrieving lost belongings on their help page, ensuring that even the most unique items have a chance of finding their way back to their owners. So, before you step out of your next ride, maybe take a second look—you never know what you might be leaving behind.

To check out all the lists, you can head over to Uber’s website.
