As you can probably imagine, Uber drivers find some interesting things that have been left in their cars. Of course, they find their fair share of phones that passengers have forgotten, but a fire sword? That's another level of lost and found.


Uber published its annual Lost & Found Index, a snapshot of Uber's most commonly forgotten and most unique lost items. The index serves as a reminder to Uber users that they can use the app to retrieve lost items, but it mostly serves as entertainment for everyone else who thinks that forgetting your hamster in an Uber (or bringing your Hamster in the first place) is odd.
