I have contributed to that figure & statistics with few of my umbrellas.

Drivers never came back to return & by the time I remember, its too late and too big of a hassle to complain for a lost item.

Cheap online shopping & door step delivery is fueling this habit of mine to forget

Thanks.

My experience with Uber's Lost and Found:

I was in Bombay a couple of years ago on a business trip. Booked a Uber from a mall to the hotel. As is common in Bombay for an hour-long trip in the taxis, I got engrossed in a conversation with the driver and at the end of the journey, I forgot to collect my shopping bags, which I had kept in the trunk.

After some time in the hotel, I had this feeling that I have left something behind. I traced the number from the e-mail i think and called up the driver who graciously bought the items the next day when he was in the area.

I left him some tip for the gentleman and learned a valuable lesson that one should never leave stuff in the trunk or in the other seats while traveling.

Interesting stats there. I can understand the items, the times. The cities may reflect the population/car numbers. But the dates ? That one beats me.
