This is a question Housemates From Hell III

I once had a flatmate who was so lazy he had a fungus growing in a cup in his bedroom - it was white and whispy so he nicknamed it "Albert". Tell us your tale of living with the disturbed, the odd, the fragile and the downright filthy.

Not housemates as such, but the Australian couple who lived in the flat above us in some converted shit hole on the Archway Road
Who had loud arguments and fights what seemed like all the time. We would lie in bed on Sunday mornings listening to them loudly calling each other cunts and stuff.

One morning after this fired up we could here things being smashed, basically the obvious sound of cups, mugs, and plates being thrown around the kitchen. I remember hearing the guy shouting "Stop smashing my things," at one point as the sounds of their fighting moved around above us. The weirdest thing is they were Mr and Mrs Normal by appearances, when we met on the stairs, in the street, etc. No indication they went for each other's throats with venom.

Anyway, that time they were smashing their flat up and obviously kicking the shit out of each other was a bit beyond what we were used to, and my girlfriend was rattled enough to want to call the cops. Their daughter who lived there as well must have been about eight or nine I guess, and more with her in mind I was more up for walking up the staircase and banging on their door and 'seeing if everything was alright.' We did neither, and moved out shortly afterwards. All a bit much for the cloudy judgments of a hangover.

It's amazing how many couples
spend a lot of time in private battering the shit out of their stuff/each other.

The problem I have at the moment is that the people downstairs are Spaniards, and I can't tell whether they're having a massive argument or a friendly chat, most of the time.

Norwegian couples sound hilarious when they're arguing.
I suspect other Scandewegians do too.
There's something about the slightly Germanic but lilting tone that makes everything sound friendly.
To paraphrase I don't know who, Italians always sound like they're reciting love poetry, French people always sound a little seedy and Germans sound like they're declaring war. I add to that that Scendewigians always sound like they're attempting to broker a peace agreement -- even when they're screaming at each other and she's throwing his bags out of the front door.
