To acknowledge the forgetful people of the world, Uber created The Uber Lost & Found Index. The index is made up of the most commonly forgotten items in an Uber, which consists of phones, rings, keys, wallets, glasses, purses, IDs, gloves, chargers and sunglasses.
But the most interesting part of the Lost & Found Index is the list of the most unique items forgotten in Ubers. Because what the what? Not only are the items people are carrying around with them super random and ridiculous (and kind of confusing), but you'd think they'd remember to, you know, not forget a bulletproof vest or an entire Nintendo system in the backseat of a stranger's car.
If you happen to be one of those forgetful people, Uber created a short video explaining how retrieve your items:

Sweet potato care package
Crime & Punishment (book)
Corn hole boards
