From designer shoes to gilded grills, Miamians leave behind a lot of random stuff in Ubers.

Driving the news: Uber's 2024 Lost & Found Index shows that Miami is the most "forgetful" city in America, with passengers here losing more personal items in Ubers than residents anywhere else.

Why it matters: It's not just that we lose a lot of stuff, but the weird crap we're leaving behind, like:

  • A pair of new Gucci loafers
  • Gold teeth
  • Personal gold
  • CPAP machine
  • A blowtorch
  • An ice cream cone made of silicone
  • A Buddha statue
  • Expensive tequila
  • PlayStation 5
  • Lottery tickets
  • Kitchen bowls

The big picture: The most common items Miamians left behind were luggage, clothing, headphones, phones and wallets.
