Uber drivers are the real MVP’s.

They pick us up when we’re drunk, take us through the Taco Bell drive-thru at 1 AM, and then get us home safe at the end of the night. They deal with obnoxious drunks, weirdos, and people throwing up in their car, all to make a little extra cash.

And, they inevitably have to deal with people leaving their shit behind in their car. Uber has released their 2019 “Lost and Found Index,” which lists the most commonly lost items, as well as the most unique items that people have left behind in an Uber this past year.

And people leave behind some weird shit.

The top 10 most commonly forgotten items were all pretty predictable – things like phones, keys, wallets, and vapes.

But then things got weird.

Here are 20 of the most “unique” items left behind in an Uber this year:

An 8 week old coffee-colored Chihuahua

What could have possibly happened during that Uber ride to make you forget that you got in the car with a Chihuahua?

6 chicken tenders from 7 Eleven

So somebody actually reported 6 chicken tenders from 7 Eleven as lost? Actually, never mind, I would have done the same thing.

A black and white tuxedo for a small dog

Probably for the Chihuahua. If you can’t remember to take the dog, there’s no way you’re going to remember its tuxedo.

A full set of 18k gold teeth

Not just a grill. A FULL SET of 18k gold teeth.

A professional grade hula hoop

That’s a thing?

A “very important” headband with peacock feathers

That doesn’t sound important at all.

A Lego championship wrestling belt

Not gonna lie, I would have kept that for myself if I were the Uber driver.

A pack of hair and a brown brush shaped like a foot

I don’t even know where to begin asking questions about this one.

A full fish tank with fish and water

How do people keep forgetting their pets in an Uber?

Two packs of Italian sausage and a Thanksgiving ham

Not just any ham, a Thanksgiving ham. Grandpa’s gonna be pissed that you left the family dinner in an Uber.

A small handmade cat puppet

Whoever left this must have thought they were too good for store-bought cat puppets.

White gold wedding band with diamonds

The only reason you would take your wedding band off in an Uber is…well, never mind.

10 lbs of pulled pork and 10 lbs of pulled chicken

How much food are you bringing with you in an Uber that you don’t realize you forgot 20 fucking pounds of it when you got out?

One Gucci flip flop

The obvious question here: Did they not realize they were only wearing one flip flop when they got out of the car?

A bird

Another pet. I feel like this one’s on the Uber driver though. If somebody got in my car with a bird, I would make sure to remind them to get that thing the hell out of my car after the ride was over.

A limited edition Chance the Rapper Starbucks gift card

That’s going to be worth some money someday. Just like my Pog and Beanie Baby collections.

A piece of parchment with sap on it

Imagine being the poor Uber driver who has to meet up with a passenger to deliver a piece of parchment with sap on it. These people don’t get paid enough for this shit.

Deer antlers and a welding helmet

Not only did somebody get in an Uber with both deer antlers AND a welding helmet, they managed to forget BOTH of them.

A Babe Ruth signed baseball

Yeah, you’re never getting that one back. But if anybody finds it, it was mine.

Man, the things these Uber drivers have to deal with. Do them a favor next time and make sure you take everything with you when you leave. Whether it’s your bird, your gold teeth or your dignity – don’t get out of the Uber without it.
