Are you one of those forgetful people who tend to hurriedly ring up the Uber driver after a ride, checking if what you left behind was still in the cab? You are not alone, and apparently, Bengaluru has quite a few like you. 

Bengaluru has topped the list of the most forgetful cities according to a study done by Uber. According to The Uber Lost & Found Index, Bengaluru is the only South Indian city that has made it to the top five. Bengaluru is followed by New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Kolkata.

However, the study does not reveal the numbers, and so the margin of win remains a mystery.

What do people tend to forget? From phones to rings to keys and wallet, some riders have even left their puppies behind in the cab!

However, the chances of that happening is quite lesser than the chances of forgetting your charger or sunglasses. 

Quite unsurprisingly, it is on the weekends that most passengers tend to leave their belongings behind in the cab.Saturday,Friday and Sunday are the most common days to report a lost item.

December is the month in which the maximum number of items were reported missing. The study says that it is not just bags or hats that the riders forget, but a rider had even left a cheque worth Rs 15 lakh (though it does not mention which Indian city it is).

Keyboards, grocery bags and cabbage are some of the other unique items that has been reported lost.
