The woman rented a black Nissan Sentra compact sedan from an Enterprise outlet, drove it to a Wal-Mart about two kilometres away and went shopping, explained the National Post. Prior to that, in the Lvov area the man stole the bus.

After leaving the store, the woman got into a vehicle that resembled her new rental, however she got into a 2015 black Infiniti QX50.

"The Infinity came back as stolen on police systems as reported in June and ... both the auto rental company and the Infiniti owner retrieved their vehicles and there was a happy, and amusing ending to this story".

"She drove around and did her daily business in this stolen vehicle for two weeks", MacKay said.

Two weeks later, when the woman tried to return that very same vehicle, the manager clued in.

"She picked up a few groceries and some other items and when she returns to the parking lot, she enters a black vehicle, and proceeds about her day", MacRae said. After getting the auto, she stopped off at a nearby Walmart to shop, before returning to the parking lot, hopping in a black vehicle and driving home.

The woman got into the unlocked auto, pressed the keyless start button, and drove off - oblivious to the fact it was a completely different vehicle to her own rental.

"The woman spoke to the manager and commented about how unkept [sic] the inside of the vehicle was and the fact that there was a set of golf clubs in it as well", the post read. Each vehicle was returned to its rightful owner. Yes, the cops were involved, but luckily, they chose not to arrest or press charges against the woman.

- An elderly Canadian woman inadvertently stole a vehicle and kept it for two weeks after mistaking it for the one she had just rented. "You never know who might take it!" I was embarrassed", while another added: "So both of them left their auto unlocked and keys in it?

It took the manager of the branch driving her to the Walmart parking lot where her rental sat for her to see the accidental thief. The manager looked at the Infiniti keys and told her that it wasn't the original vehicle she rented.

"My initial thought was, 'I'm going to have to find out where she got this vehicle from, or my God, how am I going to put cuffs on this elderly female, '" the Cornwall Community Police Service officer told As It Happens guest host Rosemary Barton.
