Let me quickly explain the situation.
-I am a second generation cancer survivor.
-My new neighbors smoke.
-My apartment & their's is connected somehow.
-I am sitting here waiting for the maintenance man that my complex promised would come put "filters" in my vents and change the main one.
-Ever since my new neighbors arrived my throat has been getting tighter and tighter. Now my daughter is coughing & sniffly.
-If I run my heater the problem only gets worse.
-Our high temp today is supposed to be 47F.
-Even without the heater on, my kitchen regularly fills with secondhand smoke.
-I am not in a smoke-free complex. We're are on a tight budget.
I want to punch someone! Our lease is almost up but I don't know if I can take a month of this! Anyone know any legal ways I can "encourage" my complex to find us a new unit in a "timely" fashion.
If you feel like saying something along the lines of this is my fault, please re-read the previous statement about me wanting to punch someone. I'm looking for help or at least encouragement! Thanks!
