My parents were moving house, and at the same time, my sister and
brother-in-law were away on holiday and had left a key to *their*
house with my Dad. My parents loft (attic) still contained a whole
bunch of stuff my sister'd left there when she'd moved out.
My Dad duly transported it round to Sis's place, installed it in their
loft, and didn't tell them.
Twas two years before they noticed.
