These are the weirdest things people have left in their Uber

So THAT's where I left my lobster

Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde

How many times have you been on a night out, drunkenly ordered an Uber and woke up the next morning thinking, ‘Oh damn it! I left my smoke machine in the car!’

No? Never? Well someone out there has, because the cab company released a list of the most bizarre things that have ever been left in one of their cars and, yes, an actual smoke machine was on it.

And that’s not even the weirdest. They report that they’ve also found a lobster, a chair (?), and – rather sinister – a bulletproof vest.

Uber has launched a new Lost & Found Index of things that have been forgotten with a video explaining how to retrieve your lost goods, and with it we have learned that people have left some VERY strange things with their drivers.
