We’re all a little forgetful sometimes — especially when it’s 1 a.m. on a Sunday morning and we’re hustling out of an Uber at top speed, headed straight for Dreamland. But according to Uber’s Lost & Found Index, some of us are more forgetful than others depending on the city we live in. Uber compiled a list of the 10 most forgetful cities based on how often Uber riders left things behind. So you may be curious to know: does your city make the list?
Thanks to all of us forgetful ones, the Uber Lost & Found Index was able to compile several lists pertaining to what was left behind in Ubers earlier this year. We’re talking phones, wallets, keys, IDs, and even an order of nuggets and large fries. Uber was also able to calculate the most forgetful time of day — between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday, which is no surprise, tbh.
Where in the U.S. are Uber riders leaving their most prized possessions in the backseat of Ubers at a staggering rate? The data might surprise you. No, the city that never sleeps (New York City) managed to dodge the list. As did other bustling cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Boston.
The majority of most forgetful riders actually hail from Southern states.
1. DuBois, Pennsylvania
2. Athens, Georgia
3. Stillwater, Oklahoma
4. Shreveport, Louisiana
5. Boone, North Carolina
6. Texarkana, Texas
7. Nacogdoches, Texas
8. Jackson, Mississippi
9. Hattiesburg, Mississippi
10. Monroe, Louisiana
Guys, you know we love your relaxed lifestyle. But we’re concerned that you who fall into this top ten list might be a bit ~too~ relaxed.
If we can learn anything from the Uber Lost & Found Index, it’s that we need tighten our grip on our belongings, no matter which state we hail from. Ah, well. It’s better is to have loved our phone and lost it than never to have had our phone at all, right?
