This is a random problem that I really don’t know how to deal with. I live in an apartment building with an indoor hallway where the staircase is. Lately I’ve been noticing a horrid smell in my apartment that has been making me feel sick and realized that it was coming from my neighbor’s apartment. My neighbor props their door open and it makes the hallway stink. I have tried talking to him but I don’t think he understands. Is this something I should just deal with or say something to our landlord. Please help!

@Pupperoni: Def. say something to the landlord. You would not the believe the number of times these things go unreported and it turns out the be something, well, not so pleasant.

I have lots of experience from living in apartment buildings. You did the right thing trying to talk to him, but if he’s not getting it you MUST speak to the landlord or manager. Ultimately there is something in there (probably garbage or rotting food, odds are that if there is a dead body he wouldn’t prop the door open lol) that he needs to take care of. You live in a building so it affects everyone in the building not just because of the smell, but it also attracts pests.
You need to call and explain nicely to the landord, and be persistent if it doesn’t get resolved.
I have no patience/tolerance for slovenly habits lik e that. Disgusting.

tell your landlord. that’s what theyre for!
i wonder why he props the door open instead of opening windows?…let your landlord figure it out.

Maybe he’s cooking up some sort of funky cultural dish for Easter? Maybe he had a bad leak. Maybe he has some kooky experiment going on. Either way, you were nice and spoke to him first. Now it’s time to notify the landlord.
