We had our meeting with the guardian technologies guy last night. It wasn't as bad as I expected. We stuck to our guns and only got what we set out to get - cable, phone, and internet hook ups. In addition, they also try to sell surround sound, a central vacuum, and a home security system.
I didn't notice this, but my husband pointed out that our sales guy directed the entire sales pitch of the security system to me. He didn't look at my husband once! I guess he was trying to play on my "womanly" fears. I actually did think the system was a pretty good deal, but we're passing for now.
We also finalized our selections last night! I'll write more about that in the next couple of days. I'm very excited! Now the long six months of waiting begins.
