Angry, noisy neighbour.

We live in a terraced house. The walls are thick so there's usually no noise from either side, but one of our neighbours - who lives alone apart from his cat - regularly shouts FUCK OFF and growls SO loudly and angrily that it's genuinely scary! The anger in it makes your blood run cold and once I thought he might have been being attacked or something. I can't work out any explanation for it at all. It usually happens first thing in the morning, but can happen any time of day, most days.

It's not bothering us that much, except when it wakes up up at the weekend. It's just weird and makes me quite wary of him. He's not friendly - if we pass he'll grunt hello but hasn't ever seemed to want to chat, and I don't try now. He looks completely healthy and 'normal' and drives a vv expensive car so I assume he's got a good job. Any ideas what could be causing such violent anger on a regular basis and would you say anything?

He's probably playing Call of Duty or some other shit and violent comp game.

Cat jumping on his sleeping face?

DS has been known to sit swearing at computer games, very angrily, as if they were real. We take the mickey. So it could well be that.

Or he has a VERY annoying cat?

Maybe he can't get something to work? Computer problems? Seemingly shouting fuck off and growling helps him vent his anger?
Strange behaviour.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 15:58:19

I never thought of that Neo confused You could be right. Huh. I fear for his blood pressure at any rate. It does happen in various different rooms in the house though - you'd think the computer game would just be in one place. I can also hear him storming around sometimes.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 15:59:51

I hope he's not shouting at the cat, poor thing! But seriously, the anger and volume and genuine emotion in it are horrifying. I can't imagine a cat could be that annoying...

Must admit, have been horrified at son shouting at computer on occasions.......... (he's 22 and I have told him it is not acceptable/very silly, before anyone asks)

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:04:48

I guess it could well be a computer thing then - luckily I don't know anyone who gets angry at computer games. DH occasionally deafens me shouting at the football though hmm

I was wondering if it was all the Thatcher coverage, but it sounds like it has been going on for a while.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:07:22

But why 'FUCK OFF' and not just 'fuck'? Weird. I need to know. But I'm too scared of him to ask grin

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:07:52

HA BOF no he's done it ever since we moved in a year ago.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:18:51

I have to say we did wonder when we first moved in whether he lived with someone who never ever came out of the house and whether there was something sinister going on...blush But I think not, as he has a cleaner that goes in regularly.

Cold callers...telephone.

Stricnine Wed 17-Apr-13 16:24:18

Could he have Tourettes or something similar.. might also explain why he appears grumpy in the street if he's afraid of talking to people?

Sallyingforth Wed 17-Apr-13 16:26:47

Sounds to me like a classic case of Tourettes.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:28:36

Khaleese he can't get that many cold callers surely?? If he does he really should do something about it!

I don't know much about Tourettes - it would make sense because he says the same thing in the same way every time, wouldn't it? He never says anything else angrily just FO. And growls ragefully.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:29:52

I have seen him storm out the house look really angry before. Tourette's doesn't make you angry does it - beyond the fact that it's a horrible condition, obv.

DontSHOUTTTTTT Wed 17-Apr-13 16:34:31

Does he watch sport or political shows? My, very mild mannered DH can get quite shouty at the television.

slug Wed 17-Apr-13 16:34:59

Is it normally around the time "Thought for the day" comes on Radio 4?

I have been known to swear at the TV/Radio when Peter Hitchens some particularly obnoxious irritant comes on to pontificate.

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:37:37

It's normally around 7am but happens at random other times too. It's just, you'd think he'd shout something different each time (e.g. Peter Hichens you f-ing twat...) if it was something like the TV causing it.

slug Wed 17-Apr-13 16:52:20

7am sounds like thought of the day time. Perhaps he's a militant atheist?

Mette7 Wed 17-Apr-13 16:53:18

Huh, we'd get on well in that case slug grin

TigOldBitties Wed 17-Apr-13 16:58:21

Is he watching some particular element of the news at that time.

I'd say Football, Gaming, Traffic Problems, some sort of opinion show.

My neighbour completely loses the plot over the football. Hilarious really as he supports Arsenal and DH supports Spurs, so while SH will jumping for joy at an Arsenal failing my neighbour is ROARING (and I do mean roaring) about the FUCKINGWANKYCUNTINGSHITTERPRICKSFUCKINGMEOFFLOADSOFBOLLOCKSKNOBBINGCUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNTS.

TigOldBitties Wed 17-Apr-13 16:59:26

Also maybe thats the time he checks his work emails/stock market or something. I used to rage at the morning text my boss sent me everyday even the weekends, for 2 years.
