Sarah says that last night an ADT sales rep came to her door trying to sell her an alarm system. He said that there were two break-ins “last week” and that whenever these occur ADT sends out a rep to “give away” two “free” alarm systems.
“I sent the guy away, and this morning looked up police reports from the last month and a half to see whether our neighborhood really did have two break-ins,” writes Sarah. “Big surprise, the answer is no.”
Moral of the story: never believe what a salesman comes to your door says, let alone buy what they’re selling.
