YODEL - Gave me a laugh!

Not a joke as such but it gave me a laugh.

I've deleted the name of my street for obvious reasons however I was at home yesterday when the door went and when I looked out saw a Yodel van. This is how the conversation went.

Yodel: Sorry to bother you i've got a parcel for next door would you mind accepting it.
Me: No that's fine it makes a change as it's usually my neighbour taking in parcels for me.

Yodel: It's quite a big box is that still ok
Me: Yes no problem.

Yodel: (goes back to his van coming back with a box about 3ft x 2ft x 2ft which he hands to me) What's the surname if you could just sign for it.
Me: No worries it's McNamara (Given my neighbour is in her 90s my interest is peaked with such a large box and in all my time in my house i've only ever taken in about 3 or 4 parcels for her so for some reason I look at the label just to double check. I then see that it's not her name and it's a different street) This box says ****** (as I read out the address to the driver)

Yodel: Yes that's correct.
Me: but this isn't **** (didn't say 'road' or house number I just gave the street) it's ****

Yodel: No (then spells out the street name on the box)
Me: No I know that but this isn't ***** (again didn't say 'road' or the house number just the street)

Yodel: Yes I know it's for your neighbour.
Me: But that's not my neighbour I'm pretty certain she stays in the same street as me this is **** (this time I say the full address)

Yodel: (Looking confused) Is this not **** then
Me: No it's ****

Yodel: Are you sure
Me: Yip pretty certain i've stayed here 18 years.

Yodel: So that's not your neighbour then?
Me: No

Yodel: Ok. Is it near you could you just take it
Me: Eh No it's a couple of streets away

Yodel: Oh ok then thanks (then takes the box back and leaves)

It was one of those conversations where I was looking for the hidden camera. I get that drivers can get streets mixed up and in the drivers defence the two streets are similar but the fact he asked if I was sure I knew what street I lived in then when he realised he was in the wrong street then asked if I could take the parcel made me laugh!
