They say Mercury is in retrograde which is influencing forgetfulness. I don't know much about astrology but we all have a tendency to be forgetful at times. Have you ever left anything behind in a rideshare vehicle? It's a pain to get it back. Uber released a report of the oddest items left behind in one of their fleet vehicles.

According to the Uber newsroom, the most common item left behind are phones and insulated water bottles. No surprise there. But it's hard to fathom these strange but true items forgotten in an Uber:

Some tater tots
500 grams of caviar
My grandma’s teeth
A Buddha locket
Cat litter and a reptile heating bulb
A grass cutter and tree trimmer
Underwear. LOTS of undies
Pizza costume
A sh*tty painting of a moose
Unicorn band aid box
Pie and donuts
6 pool drains and an Employee of the Month plaque
40 chicken nuggets
Bernie Sanders fanny pack (Hahahaha!)
A crocheted strawberry
Darth Vader helmet
Part of my soft serve ice cream machine
Metal leg
Painting of Kung Fu Panda and pink air pump shaped as a pig
A broom handle
Antique walking cane with a sword
17 flowers and 3 milk teas
Urn with pet ashes + urn of family member!
Tube for chugging drinks
Two pair of snorkeling goggles and a passport from China
A power washing machine and a wooden carved fish
Dream catcher and a deck of tarot cards
A grill
A bucket of slime
Small rhino sculpture
Brown tortoise
Spray tan machine
Breast pump and a white cowboy hat (Giggety)
10lbs of hamburger meat
Ball gag and stethoscope
A windmill

In case you missed the 2021 list there are some doozies here too.

1. A cooler full of fish
2. False teethe and dentures. I like the feeling of wind through my gums, too.
3. A sushi platter
4. 22 bundt cakes and a pan of homemade macaroni and cheese
5. An ankle monitor (It just fell off, officer!)
6. A tooth (What the heck happened in that ride?)
7. FBI bulletproof vest (Someone is going to want that back)
8. A green dinosaur Halloween costume and a knife (I'm guessing it wasn't worn while getting the backseat of a Prius)
9. A toilet seat (I always travel with mine, too)
10. Large painting of Kate Middleton
11. A catheter (Eeeewwww....)
12. A Harry Potter wand (Why not just use it to make a magic broom and avoid the rideshare?)
13. A pink leopard-print bikini (What happens in the backseat stays in the backseat)
14. A mannequin head (I wonder where the legs and torso went? Nevermind...I really don't want to know)
15. A prosthetic leg (Wouldn't you know immediately that...? Not going there.)
16. A dog’s ashes (Well that's unfortunate)
17. Thanksgiving ham (Try explaining to grandma you left your beautiful spiral-cut ham in the back of a Toyota)
18. A raw chicken and 20 pounds of salt (That's too much sodium for one chicken anyway)
19. A welding helmet
20. Victoria Secret bras and panties (There's GOT to be an interesting backstory here)
