You won’t believe what some people leave in their Uber.

When you’re juggling an armful of items, having a big night out or are distracted talking to a friend, it’s easy to understand how something can get left behind in an Uber. And yes, you’ll be happy to know you’re not the only one to experience this level of forgetfulness, with Uber releasing its yearly lost and found items list for all New Zealand passengers.

So what and when is the most likely time we’re bound to leave an item in our ride? Unsurprisingly it’s on a Friday or Saturday between the hours of 8pm and 1am – safe to say, we’re the most absent-minded culprits during a big night out. And while some of the items left behind in NZ Ubers are not unexpected – cue your keys, wallet and phone – there are definitely some items in this list that will catch you off guard. Seriously… is anyone missing a lightsaber or their final assignment?
