Neighbour squealing

I live next door to a nice woman, but she is one of those people who emit a piercing high pitched scream instead of laughing. She is quite excitable and screams constantly, she lives alone, but when her children or boyfriend visits the squealing is unbearable.

Tonight has reached a new level of screams per minute ratio and we were wondering what could have possibly been the source of such side splitting hilarity...only to hear the theme tune to 'some mothers do 'ave them' thru the wall. I cannot believe frank fucking spencer putting his trousers on back to front and saying 'ooh Betty' could have produced such a reaction.

So wibu to scream 'shut up for the love of god' thru her letter flap or is this some sort of comedy gold I am missing? And if so, is it worth revisiting such other 'classics' as 'are you being served' and 'bless this house'?

MrsKoala - when I first met my friend, I found her really unnerving. I didn't know if I was supposed to laugh too! I wondered how on earth she found everything so very hilarious. hmm

I think I've just become used to her tbh.

Pump helium through her letter box then her tone will go so high that only dogs will hear and they will follow her and mooch.

Sorry but I am the owner of a filthy laugh. People have commented. blush

I do think laughing at everything is often a cultural thing. Some cultures laugh as social bonding, whether things are funny or not. I used to recruit nurses and loads of African ladies applied, they were lovely and good nurses but used to laugh unnervingly at everything.

Me: so are you here to apply to the role of nurse
Nurse: (absolutely pissing themselves cackling very loudly) yes
Me: erm, right well here is the form, do you have pen?
Nurse: (now hooting with mirth) no
Me: (stepping back to save eardrums) here you go
Nurse: (wiping tears away and howling) thank you

It took me ages to get used to it. I prefer my British reserve ie being a miserable fucker
