Wrong number

So I received a phone call about an hour ago.

"Can I speak to Lizzie please?"
"Sorry - you have the wrong number"
"Are you sure?"
"Yes I'm sure"
"She has three children - are you sure she's not there?"
"Yes I'm sure - sorry"
Call ends

45 minutes later

"Sorry to call you again but my mum rang this number last year and spoke to Lizzie. Have you just moved in"
"Are you in Boughton Monchelsea?"
"Well something is wrong because my mum spoke to her on this number last year"
"Not sure how because I've lived here for a few years"
"She left her husband because he was too good for her - was that you?"
"I think we'll leave it there - please don't call again" 

It's not a sales pitch, it's too unscripted. These two women (and there are assorted children providing further background sounds) are really looking for someone who they believe can be contacted on this telephone number but at the point where they revealed why the woman's marriage had failed I had to bail out. Surreal.

This is for Phil

I wonder who thought that this combination of colours used in this way might be attractive; particularly when used on attractive buildings such as this one. Whoever it was deserves a stern talking to.
