NickJSouthall: is he kicking a football against your door atb 4am and screaming "wake up you weird cunt" at you?
fadeout95: no don't think so.
NickJSouthall: has his best mate (who you are sure he is in love with in a very repressed homosexual way) thrust his hand through your kitchen window, severing an artery and leaving you to pluck glass out of his hand?
