Keys, glasses, purses – what else?
Uber released data Wednesday detailing items that were most likely to make their way to the lost-and-found last year. And while riders across the nation are more likely to forget their iPhones, Philadelphians should really hold on to their hats.
The ridesharing giant shared the Philly-centric data showing local Uber passengers are as forgetful as anywhere else, and there's nothing too unusual about the lost goods.
It is questionable why so many Philadelphians were wearing hats while calling a ride to who knows where, but that's pretty standard compared to vacuums, Nintendo's or bags of Hot Cheetos – some of the more unusual items left in Ubers across the United States.
The national data also found that Sundays were the most common days for items to be reported as lost while Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Miami were the most "forgetful" cities in the U.S.
