What are the chances?

A conversation I had today with a man trying to order a necklace.........

Tom - I cannot pay by paypal as it is my wife's account and I want it to be a surprise.
Me - No problem. If there is no rush you could send a cheque?
Tom - I don't have a cheque book.
Me - Actually, I just noticed your phone number is local. Are you in Newton Abbot?
Tom - Yes.
Me - Well I am only in Ashburton!
Tom - Really (surprised). Great, so I could come and collect it and pay you then?
Me - Perfect!
Tom - My wife has a friend who has one of your necklaces.
Me - I wonder if I might know her.
Tom - Maybe, her name is Charlotte Smith.
Me - And, who are you?
Tom - Tom Smith
Me - Did you go to school locally?
Tom - Yes
Me - I think I went to school with you.
Tom - Who are you?
Me - Amy Elson.
Tom - OMG!
Me - I was going to say, didn't I snog you when we were at school?
Both - Lots of (slightly embarrassed) laughter.

He is coming to collect it later this week. Will start working on the outfit now, must look my best!
