The new place I'm living at was advertised by the landlord's agent as being a "smoke free house".
Anyway, one of the tenants who signed the lease around the same time I did just happens to smoke, and rather heavily. Just my luck that his room is right next to mine. When he smokes, he keeps his door shut and opens a window. The smell/smoke still manages to seep through outside his room, and sometimes a bit into my room, which is disgusting and unhealthy. I shouldn't have to put up with this.
Anyway, what should I do? The guy seems pretty hardcore. He's not huge or anything, but he does have a lot of friends and he's big on the "badass" motif (he has a big goatee/beard, has a snowboard with a skull on it, his ashtray is shaped like a skull, and he has a black and evil looking electric guitar). He seems like a decent guy though, since I've talked to him a bit. Aside from having to tell him to keep his voice down past 2AM, I've had no issues. But for some reason, I'm hesitating on telling him my issues with his smoking.
But seeing as it's either that or complain to the landlord/agent (which means he's going to hear about my complaint the BAD way anyway), I guess I should tell him about it. I'm thinking of just asking him to smoke outside, because the smoke is really bothering me and that I rented the place expecting no smokers.
What do you think? Seems a bit unrealistic to ask a heavy smoker to take every one of his smokes outside, especially when winter is right around the corner. I still can't believe I have to put up with this, having expected a "smoke free" house...
