A courageous customer brought a top they bought 17 years ago into a store to be returned - and got away with it.

Anyone who has worked in retail will know the struggle of customers bringing items of clothing in for return beyond the return date.

Usually this goes as far as a week or two beyond the store policy, but one cheeky customer brought a top back to Gap that they bought 17 years ago.

Unsurprisingly, the store manager wasn't impressed when they saw that the top had been accepted as a return, and left a note in the staff room to remind employees of the policy.

"Who on Earth accepted this as a return?!" reads a photo of the sign, which was uploaded to Reddit.

“This item is from the summer of 2000! That was almost 17 years ago! Our return policy is 45 days! If you’re not sure, ask!”

We can only imagine how delighted the customer was when their long overdue return was accepted - and wonder how they managed to keep the shirt in good condition for so long.
