The Top Ten Things People Left Behind in Ubers Last Year, and the Ten Weirdest


If you take an Uber home from the bar this weekend, check the seat before you get out.  11:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. are the most common times people leave stuff behind, because that’s when everyone’s heading home drunk.  Expect that to kick into overdrive on St. Patrick’s Day.

Uber just released stats on all the stuff people left behind last year.  The top ten items we forgot were our phone . . . wallet . . . keys . . . clothing . . . glasses . . . a handbag or purse . . . backpacks . . . e-cigarettes . . . headphones . . . and IDs.

Sunday and Saturday are the most common days to leave stuff behind.  It’s the rarest on Wednesdays and Tuesdays.

The cities that leave the most stuff behind are DuBois, Pennsylvania . . . Athens, Georgia . . . Stillwater, Oklahoma . . . Shreveport, Louisiana . . . and Boone, North Carolina.  Possibly because they’re all big college towns.

And for some reason, mid-September through late October is the most popular time of year to forget stuff.  The top five days were all between September 17th and October 22nd.  (Maybe because it’s right around the start of the fall semester?)

They also posted a list of the WEIRDEST stuff people forgot.  Here are the top ten . . .

“Star Wars” encyclopedia . . . two packs of mud from the Dead Sea . . . one shoe . . . a bulletproof vest . . . a flat screen TV . . . a leaf blower . . . a butcher knife . . . a single dart . . . a college diploma . . . and someone’s little brother.


Man Finds Python In Wall

LiveLeak claims Somchai Subdang, of Bangkok, Thailand, was recently watching television when he heard strange noises coming from his wall.

The snake catchers relocated the serpent to a nearby wooded area

A Guy Gave His Wife a Kidney for Their 23rd Anniversary

  The traditional gift for your 23rd wedding anniversary is a silver plate, which is REALLY specific and outdated.  This guy went with a slightly better option . . .

Cesar Calle and his wife Monica live in Weston, Florida, about 30 miles northwest of Miami.  And for their 23rd anniversary last month . . . he gave her one of his KIDNEYS.

She has polycystic kidney disease and had to have dialysis every night for almost three years.  Then Cesar recently found out he could donate, and obviously he said yes.

The surgery happened back on February 19th, the same week they were celebrating their 23rd anniversary.

Now it’s in the news because the hospital where the surgery happened just posted a video about it this week.
