Study Conducted by Uber
Cab-aggregator Uber conducted a study, which showed that cab passengers forget a lot of odd stuff in their cabs in 2018. The commodities are a wide variety of things ranging from live fish, milk sachets, prams, ukulele, bunches of banana, aluminum storage shelf, yoga mat, knee pad, and even sarees.
This is in addition to other items such as personal hotspot devices, toy cars, footwear (Crocs), glasses, cell phone chargers, water bottles, etc. Also, bags and phones, other items like knee pads, gold chains, baby prams, ukuleles, and live fish are ‘the usuals’ that cab riders tend to forget.
The report says, “Over the last year, we’ve seen objects including phones, cameras, and bags top the list of items left in Ubers across India, followed by utility items like wallets, keys, clothing, and umbrellas rounding off the top ten.”
Time and Day Specific Instances of Forgetfulness
Apparently, there is also a specific time of the day wherein the forgetfulness is at a peak, which is between 1-3 pm. Also, people forgot their things mostly on weekends. Also, in 2018, September 1, followed by June 9, September 2, July 15 and September 8, were the days on which incidents of forgetfulness happened the most.
As per the Uber Index, Bengaluru is the city which is at the top of the list followed by New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Kolkata.
However, Uber did not reveal the exact number of instances of forgetfulness in these cities.
