I thought it couldn’t get worse: from dirty to smelly homes

All last year I thought that I was living in the most agitated situation you could possibly imagine.

I had signed on to be a roommate with some random people off of Craigslist in a stage of complete desperation.

I didn’t know these folks when I moved in & I surely would not have signed on for 6 months with them if I had any idea how disgusting they were. When I visited the apartment, it was relatively wash & I thought that everything should be fine. Then, all of the disgusting behaviors began. My roommates refused to ever wash the kitchen, wash the bathroom, or change the air filter in the central heating & cooling system. Every afternoon, nasty & dirty air was circulating through the central Heating, Ventilation & A/C system & pumping directly into my kitchen. I could literally see the plumes of dust emanating from the air vents whenever the central furnace or a/c kicked into gear. No matter what I did, my room was filled with dust & my lungs were super angry. I absolutely thought that it could not get any worse than living with these nasty, air contaminating humans. Then, I got my new roommates. I want from a dwelling with a completely filthy Heating, Ventilation & A/C system to a completely smelly Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. Apparently, the people I live with now are not fans of showering. I can smell their body stink every time the central cooling system starts operating & no amount of air freshener seems to make a difference. I have personally changed the air filters several times, but none of the air purification methods seem to detach their disgusting airborne stinks. I am not sure which is worse, living with dirty people or such smelly people. But I can’t wait to have my own Heating, Ventilation & A/C system.
