Leaving your jacket, keys or phone in a taxi or Uber car? Common occurrence. But in Uber’s third annual Lost & Found Index lists a few unusual items—10 lbs. of pulled pork, for one—left behind.

On the 50 most unique lost items, see No. 8, No. 17 and No. 19 for that “what are people thinking” factor. But what caught our eye was two packs of Italian sausage and a Thanksgiving ham at No. 20 and the 10 lb. of pulled pork at No. 45.

Riders were most forgetful on Saturdays and Sundays and late at night, between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m. The most forgetful days of the year were Jan. 1, 2018 and Oct. 29, 2018—New Years and Halloween.

Days of the week also saw a trend: Riders were more likely to forget watches on Monday, headphones on Tuesday, laptops on Wednesday, books on Thursday, passports on Friday, phones on Saturday and cakes on Sunday.

A new rule of thumb: Unload the meat and cake first!
