Uber Russia has compiled a list of items which are frequently forgotten inside the taxi cabs in 2016, the TJournal internet magazine reported.

Most passengers leave their cell phones, caps, scarves, gloves, documents, keys, sunglasses and purses. The most unusual items that taxi drivers found in their vehicles were: a wig, a gun, a saber, fresh fish and a painting.

The most scattered passengers are the residents of Moscow, Rostov-on-Don and Novosibirsk. Residents of Perm and St. Petersburg are finalizing the list of the top five most oblivious clients.

Uber analysts compiled a calendar depicting the days when Russians tend to forget more belongings than any other days of the year: on March 7 (the eve of the International Women's Day), on December 29 (when the New Year's corporate parties are held), January 2, October 21 and November 26.

About 4,000 forgotten items returned to their owners every month by the Uber drivers around the world.
