    I wasn't sure where to put this because it's a personal problem, but it's because my flatmates are so awful. I moved into my halls a week last Saturday, and my flatmates are so inconsiderate that it's untrue. They go out and leave plates on the side, and Joe spilt cornflakes this morning and didn't even disinfect the work surface after he'd wiped them off. I'm at my wits end now. I thought that I'd be the good flatmate, and bought a bottle of washing up liquid for us all to share, and secretly kept a marker on it to view the progress of its use. Suffice to say, none of it's gone between my uses of it (which are everyday).

    Last night was the straw that broke the camel's back. It was around 10:30pm, and I was getting ready for bed, but those idiots all came back from the pub singing 'won't you come home Bill Bailey' and were really loud. At first, being the considerate person that I am, I ignored it, and thought, 'oh well, who am I to ruin their fun, as long as they're being safe and considerate'. But then Harriet turned on her Ipod speakers and started dancing round the kitchen to 'Can't Fight the Moonlight' at full blast. I therefore went out my room and into the kitchen, and shouted at them to 'kindly shut the **** up because some of us actually have a 9am meeting with the Christian Union'.

    I went back into my room, and I heard Olivia say, 'who put sand up her fanny?' Well I wasn't going to tolerate a jumped-up little madam saying that. So I went back into the kitchen and said to them that if they didn't turn it down, then they'd regret it, and Harriet said, 'oh go to bed and stop embarrassing yourself'. I saw red though and I pulled the speakers out of the wall (with the Ipod in) and put them into the sink which was full of water and broke it.

    Harriet started really shouting in my face about what I'd done and so I slapped her to try and quieten her down, but then Olivia said, 'that was bang out of order' and I saw red again because I was the one who was provoked into breaking the stupid speakers and Ipod. I started to throw their dirty washing up across the kitchen and broke Harriet's special mug and threw Olivia's casserole dish at her and it smashed on the floor.

    It all culminated in two of the guys having to hold me back, and I went back into my bedroom to cool off, but I've heard them all ****ging me off now and it's really upsetting me. I know that they're going to make the next year awkward and horrible.

    What can I do about it?
    nice story

    Fortunately in my halls of residence, and others in Exeter (I think) there's a rule where people aren't allowed to play loud music between 11pm and 7am. I'll have to tolerate losing a bit of sleep during Freshers week though...

    With regards to everyone doing the washing up, just have a little chat with your flatmates and say that you all have to pull your weight or something like that.

    I can understand annoyance arising from lots of noise but we still have to hold ourselves back from reacting the way you did.

    You were completely and utterly out of order with your flatmates. I'm actually appalled by your behaviour.
    Your flatmate leaving cornflakes out on the side - he cleared the mess up. Disinfectant? It wasn't raw meat or eggs!
    Them coming home from the pub singing at 10:30pm - they were just having some fun. It wasn't even that late. In my old halls we had a no noise after 11pm policy.
    Ditto for your flatmate and her blasting some music. If it was really that loud and getting late, maybe you could have popped into her room and asked her nicely if she would mind turning it down a few notches? Or joined in. Shouting and swearing will not get you anywhere; it will just get you enemies and absolotely no respect. Living with other people is about compromise.
    The comment about sand up your fanny? Well, it wasn't the nicest way of putting it, but you provoked it.
    You had absolutely no right to vandalise their property. I'm surprised you haven't been reported. Putting electrics in water is also very dangerous. Slapping and attempting to harm by throwing a fairly hefty object was absolutely despicable and I am totally gobsmacked you haven't been reported for that.
    I have NO sympathy for you, and if I were one of your flatmates, I would actually be scared of you and that is not something to be proud of. Please sort out your anger and violence issues.

    I can see where you're coming from.. but the stuff that you've said has gone off has basically ruined it. Try and see if you can move out. I can't see things getting better with them after what's happened, to be honest.

    You sound just about right for a member of the Christian Union; a Roy Cropper of sorts

    Right, theres probably no brillant way to deal with this now! But if i were you i'd either go and ask if you could move rooms? orrr you are to do the adult thing, say sorry (tbh what do you expect its freshers, everyone is trying to settle in and get along ) why didnt you want to have fun with them. and then try and make up and offer to buy them all the things you broke!

    You threw an iPod speakers into the sink, smashed a special personal item threw a large heavy piece of crockery at one of your flatmates? Then you complain that they are being rude and inconsiderate in Freshers Week after a night out, this is University, it is going to be loud, noisy and full of people that you don't like and you cant throw things at them all!

    The comment was extremely rude, but people say things when they are drunk that they don't mean, you as the sober one have to just ignore it. It is Freshers Week, it is a huge party at whatever University you choose and tempers fray after a week of alcohol, it's best just to have some quiet time.

    After doing that though I would be groveling and apologizing, if that was any of my former flat mates I would have reported you to the Warden and tried to get you thrown out! You live with other people and it will not always go your way, violence is never the answer and if you continue like that you will be probably getting a smack back!

    I wouldn't be, if she'd have broken my property I'd have battered her out the door.
