To whom it may concern,

It's easy to see how one can be suckered into renting a studio when the price is right. These were the cheapest apartments in all of San Jose that I could find. You may find it's very much like having roommates while sharing a house or something. After all, there's no fan over the stove to filter out cooking smells. If you want to get rid of the smell but want heat too at the same time forget it. My whole kitchen will fill up with smoke and the heat from the heater goes right out the window. So I can't do both now. Plus the walls aren't even insulated either. In fact, they're very thin and you will never have complete privacy. Not unless you lower your voice down to a whisper otherwise I can hear every word you say chrystal (sic) clear. Did you know that?

Sincerely,
Your next door neighbor
