Hi, this is Charlie Hamilton.  I’m a tenant living on the seventh floor of this building.  I moved here four months ago and I enjoy living here because of my good neighbors.  However, I have a problem and I’m calling because you are the apartment manager.  This summer is very hot, so I open my windows a lot.  The problem is that the wind blows a funny smell into my room.  I didn’t want to complain, but the smell has continued for a whole week.  As an apartment manager, please let me know what you can do about this situation.  I would appreciate a return call. Thank you.
