In late June, an elderly woman rented a black Nissan Sentra, then went to the supermarket.
In Cornwall, Ont., the where-the-hell-did-I-park scenario took on a unusual and novel twist recently, after a black Nissan Infiniti, that was reported missing from a Walmart parking lot in late June, was found when a woman tried to return it to a local vehicle rental company. The owner of the vehicle left his fob in the auto, enabling the woman to drive away. After shopping, she hopped in a vehicle she thought was hers, started it up and drove away.
And it wasn't until this past weekend when the woman returned the vehicle to the same auto rental company that the manager pieced the entire situation together and realized what had happened. Constable Tommy MacKay who dealt with the incident said the man who owned the stolen Infiniti had a good laugh about it and the woman who stole it was embarrassed.
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.
"Shortly thereafter she exited, walked over to the area where she had parked her vehicle, saw a shiny black vehicle, hopped in it and drove away", he said.
"The manager and the woman, who was now confused and a wee bit embarrassed herself, returned to the auto rental company and contacted police, providing the information for the Infiniti and what took place", the post stated.

Trump said he will raise the issue of election meddling again in his July 16 meeting with Putin . And we will, of course, ask your favourite question about meddling.
In the end, both the auto rental company and the Infiniti owner retrieved their vehicles and there was a happy ending to the story. I got into the auto and I noticed different objects on the dashboard, then I noticed I got into the wrong vehicle.
"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. "The woman was not impressed and handed over the keys".
A Canadian man has had his auto returned to him after it was stolen two weeks ago - but the story of where it ended up is nearly too good to be true. There sat the Nissan Sentra, exactly where the woman had parked it two weeks earlier.
Police say that both of these cars use key fobs to unlock and start the auto.
Fortunately, nothing bad came out of the ordeal - and all parties involved have a wacky story they can tell to their friends and family members. The pair of them retraced her path back to the Walmart where the Nissan was still sitting in the exact same spot she had parked it.
