The pane of glass in the bottom half of my bathroom window broke during the winter and I asked to have it fixed. I would have been perfectly happy (nay, thrilled) if the super had just use window film on the outside of the pane to keep all the pieces in place, but instead I got a new window. A completely see-through window. Not frosted or speckled. See-through. At ground level (literally – it’s just a few inches from the ground). Facing a busy (always) sidewalk and road.
To add insult to injury, I wasn’t told this was happening, so I was a bit surprised to walk into my bathroom in not very many clothes (I change out of my work clothes as soon as I walk in the door). Needless to say, the towel I hung is ugly but essential.
This damned apartment gives me a lot of grief :p
