I moved into a small cottage not long ago. I love everything about it now, but that wasn’t the case when I first moved in. I loved the layout and the neighborhood, but I did not like that there was no security system installed. My new neighbor didn’t understand why I wanted to have an ADT security system installed when I first moved in. All I could tell her is that I had seen too much in my life, and I knew that I was not living in a bubble that was free from the world’s evils.
I know she thought I was being melodramatic, but it is the way I feel. I know that the chances of something happening in this tiny little town are slim to none, but I also know that when tragedy strikes people, most were never expecting it. I did not want to find myself in that category of people. I want to know if there is a danger to me, whether it is in the form of an intruder trying to get into my house or dangerous activity inside like smoke or carbon monoxide.
The funny thing is when the tech came out to install the system for me, my new neighbor made sure she was here to ask some questions. Thankfully, the tech didn’t mind. He told her some stats that really shocked her, and she began to realize that she was the one living in a bubble after all, and she decided she wanted to have a security system installed as well. Since we both had them installed, we have never had the need to use them. Knowing that they are there in case we do though makes all the difference in the world. I am just really glad she came around, and she is too!
