As a tenant renting space in your building, it's frustrating how little attention you pay to me and my neighbors who work hard and pay rent but find it almost impossible to get our apartment needs met. My side of the building has had to shower with cold running water for more than two months because of a break in the water heater, and there's been nothing done to fix it, despite our many complaints. I'd like to see you come home from a hard day's work to shower in freezing-cold water in the middle of winter. As cold as the nights are this time of year, it's definitely not as cold as your rich, condo-habitating shoulder.
