Forgetting something?

The wife of Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill didn’t do a thorough search of a vehicle she rented before she returned it — accidentally leaving a firearm for the next rental customer and scaring the living daylights out of the woman’s daughter.

Lauren Tannehill, 26, rented the Nissan Rogue from E-Z Rent-A-Car in Miami on Jan.4. She returned the vehicle for another just two hours later.

That same day, Judith Fleissig, 58, of Rochester, N.Y., rented the same vehicle, but didn’t find the gun for another two days. She told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that the seats were folded down when she picked up the vehicle and she didn’t notice the case in the back seat.

That’s when her daughter unzipped the bag.

“Oh my God, it’s a gun.”

Fleissig replied:

“I think I’m going to throw up.”

She handed the rifle, valued at $2,000, to the nearest police department.

“This is certainly the kind of item you don’t want to forget anywhere, but forgetting isn’t a crime,” said Broward Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Keyla Concepcion.

It is unclear if Tannehill was able to retrieve her weapon. The Dolphins had no comment on the matter, saying that the Tannehills view the incident as a personal matter.
