So I'm thinking it was a wrong number?

Setting: the bookstore where I work, 3:36pm

The phone rings.

Me: "Hello! R&M Bookstore!" 
Caller: "..." 
Me: "Hello?" 
Caller: "You speak Russian?" 
Me: "'m sorry." 
Russian Lady: "You have translator?" 
Me: " We're a bookstore." 
Russian Lady: "Oh, ok..." 
Lengthy pause. I debate my options.
Me: "Can you find a book?" 
Russian Lady: "No!" 
Me: "..."
Russian Lady: "Ok, I go back now."
Me: "Ok! Well...bye then!" 
Russian Lady: "Bye!"
