Lethbridge has made its name on a few lists over the last few years, including one of the safest places for drivers by Allstate Canada and ranked among the most unsafe cities in Canada by Maclean's magazine in 2017.

Accidentially left your phone inside an Uber?

According to the ride-sharing company, which released its annual "Lost & Found Index" this week, phones are the most commonly lost items during an Uber ride.

Uber Canada's data also revealed pattern of objects that are more likely to be lost during the days of the week.

Riders didn't just leave the usual stuff; even an ukulele and bunch of bananas have been reported as lost.

One again, Saturday's were the most common day for Uber riders to lose items, likely after a few weekend libations. East Alabama came in at number one, while Tallahassee, Florida rounded out the list at 10.

Along with that, Uber Canada said that riders were more forgetful on Saturdays, Sundays, and late nights between 11pm and 1am.

If the driver does not pick up, leave a detailed voicemail describing your lost item and the best way to contact you. "The most forgetful days in 2018 were September 1, June 9, September 2, July 15 and September 8", it said.

Uber says the best way to retrieve a lost item is to contact your driver. Select the trip and scroll down for the option for when you've lost something.

If you lost your personal phone, enter a friend's phone number (you can do this by logging into your account on a computer, or using a friend's phone). If the driver finds your lost item, co-ordinate a mutually convenient time and place to meet for it to be returned to you.
