Attention Philly bros: Stop leaving your hats in the Uber. You’re the only ones doing it.

The scandal-ridden ride-sharing service released information about the items most often left behind in Uber vehicles, and hats come in at No. 1.

This appears to be a Philly thing. Nationally, hats don’t even crack the top 10. We’re more likely to leave our hats behind than our phones!

It’s not the only outlier on our top 10 list. Coming in at No. 4 is checks. Which raises some questions: Who brings a checkbook into an Uber? Who brings a checkbook anywhere outside the top drawer of their dresser?

Here’s the full top 10 list for Philadelphia and underneath, the United States:
