I concur. It feels highly likely that your final conclusion is spot on the nose. Who hasn’t pretended to be confused? Especially when you’ve been sprung doing something that you really don’t want the other person to know. Cut to me 26 years ago as a gung-ho teenager swaying gently as I assured my gaping parents that I hadn’t been drinking. I think the vomit down my shirt also gave the game away. I still remember the sound of my parents hooting with laughter as I lay there with my body and mind spinning after my first drink. As a ruse to cause doubt, I don't think it worked then. And it appears that neither has it been successful today.

So, excellent news to read that you reported it. I also think that your initial hesitation about calling the police was well measured. Especially in light of today’s example of the person in Kent calling 999 about their snowman being nicked. -> see this link to the BBC News Article from today.

And I also think showtunesgirl’s suggestions were very helpful. Thank you showtunesgirl for reminding me about this handy service. I’ve made a note of this handy service's handy number. And quite easy to remember which is...um...handy.

Hawkesrah, I think you may have saved some people a lot of intensely annoying pain by blocking this bloke’s next move.
