Uber recently released its annual Lost and Found Index, and while some things are frustratingly common to lose track of, some are… not.
From March 2020- 2021, phones, wallets, keys and bags once again topped the most commonly forgotten items, followed by glasses, clothing and headphones… often a single AirPod.
But we’re not here for the misplaced sunnies, are we?
No. We want the weird stuff.
This year, Uber not just listed their ‘most unique’ lost items, but an even more specific list… The 10 most ‘Aussie’ items lost:
- One black thong (yes, the shoe)
- An esky
- 10-pack Jim Beam
- Blonde clip-in extensions
- XXXX Gold Cap
- An RM Williams belt
- A Woolies work polo
- A pair of budgie smugglers
- Photos from day at Australia Zoo
The 20 most unique items lost:
- Glass eye
- Small sword
- Sleep apnea machine
- 1ct diamond
- Yoda lightsaber replica
- A Batman cape
- A doll head
- Crystal tiara
- ‘Will you marry me’ styrofoam letters
- Navy tie with a small bicycle on it
- The right foot of a Christian Louboutin shoes
- A fluffy toy chicken
- Single piece of LEGO
- Two pairs of new underwear
- 2 vinyls, one Elton John album and the other Frank Sinatra
- A pearl (fairly big)
- A painting with a woman dancing in the middle
Also making the list, food that riders have requested be returned, including a chicken burrito, homemade Italian sausages, a lemon pie, meat and eggs, dumplings and whole frozen fish.
I mean, I don’t care how much Christmas cheer you’ve had, who the heck forgets a burrito.
