I’m not exactly sure what is going on with my living situation right now, but I can tell you that it’s extremely uncomfortable.
My roommates are being a bit strange and that means that the indoor air temperature is extremely uncomfortable as well. I started noticing about a week ago that the indoor temperature was extremely cold. It seemed like the thermostat wasn’t working or we were having some kind of heating failure. I didn’t want to seem pushy, so I didn’t say anything to my roommates about the unpleasant indoor air quality at first. I silently dealt with the uneven hot and cold temperatures inside the house, and bundled up in as many sweatshirts as I could. However, eventually I did ask them what was going on with the heating system. It’s nonchalantly responded that the pilot light has gone out and they’re waiting for the landlord to come fix it. I didn’t want to pressure them, so I didn’t tell them that that was a bit ridiculous. I’m not sure why they didn’t want to just relight the pilot themselves. However, I can tell you that I can’t continue to wait for the landlord to show up for this basic heating service. I’ve been freezing my butt off for way too long now. I don’t know how I can continue living in there, especially as the outdoor air temperature continues to drop next week. Instead, I’ve been slowly moving my things over to my boyfriend’s house and sleeping warmly in his working heat. I know that this plan can’t work forever, but until the furnace is running effectively again, I will be crashing here.
