(Newser) – A cellphone? Sure. But a lobster? That's just one of the odd things left behind in an Uber—and there are plenty, according to the company's Lost and Found Index published Wednesday. It notes that small items like wallets, keys, and phones are among the most commonly forgotten items. But occasionally large and downright strange pieces also get left behind. Ten notable ones, per Time:

  • Engagement ring
  • Nordic walking poles
  • Pool cue
  • Vacuum
  • Smoke machine
  • Bulletproof vest
  • Elf cut-out
  • Money bag
  • Valium
  • Taser
