Usually I am asleep at this time (2am) but I woke up in the middle of the night extremely mad and disappointed with myself. Worst part is I don't know if I should tell my husband (typically I do not keep anything from him) but the reason I wouldn't tell him is because he will be really upset with me which he should be. So I am taking it to the Nest to get this off my chest.
The good news is that Vivint is an actual company and I did not buy their product when the salesman came to my door today. The bad news is that the reason I can't sleep is thinking HOW DUMB I was not to say "My husband is not available right now and I don't make decisions without him, thanks anyway" at the very beginning of the sales pitch. No, instead I let the guy look at the door jam (from the outside), told him what kind of doors and locks we have in the back, that we do not have a security system, what I do for a living, when I am usually home, what my husband does (which is a state job that he does not like to divulge anyway) and that he works second shift, etc.) What was I thinking?!!!!
So I woke up in the middle of the night convinced that I was going to get broken into tonight (husband still working overnight til 7am) and googled the company Vivint. At least I am relieved to find out it is a real company but of course what they offer is too good to be true and is indeed false ("free" security system if you just put their sign out front). A simple google reveals exactly why one would not choose them and I experienced first hand the pushy tactics that the guy used. (Although I am still to blame for divulging all that info - ugh - never again!!!!!).
