Had an 'odd' caller last night, suspicious mainly because I am naturally sceptical.

About 20:00 the doorbell rang and I answered it to find a relatively well-dressed, diminutive lady in her late 50s/early 60s asking if Pat and Andy (names might be wrong) lived in our house or one of the other houses in the row. She was blathering on about having something urgent to deliver to them and kept brandishing a carrier bag with said item in. She was persistent despite me telling her we'd been at the address for years, know the majority of our neighbours and that no-one matching her description had been there in that time. She seemed particularly interested in my neighbours house (which looked occupied at the time). She had a slightly odd air to her and I'd be really surprised if she was part of a team 'casing' properties but who knows.

I couldn't decide what she was angling for; to leave this mystery item with us, to come in for some unknown reason, information of other houses/people? I'm slightly annoyed with myself for giving out a couple of first names of some neighbours but she had me mystified.

Anyone else had a similar caller??
