TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (343)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of The Telegraph (from Monday, October 24; link good at time of posting):
A teenager, Toni Nicholson, has been evicted from her flat after holding all night vuvuzela parties.


After a string of complaints from neighbours, her landlords Town and County Housing decided to take legal action to force the mum-of-one out after she repeatedly ignored requests to stop the wild parties.

Among the complaints from neighbours included party guests blowing vuvuzelas 'en masse', fighting in the stairwell, damaging property and throwing things of the first-floor balcony.

Errol Harris, a boss at Town and Country Housing, said his team had tried to persuade Miss Nicholson to stop her parties and be a 'good neighbour', but that the problems lasted more than one year.

He confirmed that a number of complaints had mentioned 'ear-splitting noise' from vuvuzelas and that the repossession of the flat was the 'only option' left after Miss Nicholson continually breached an injunction to stop the parties.


Nicholson refused to comment about her eviction, but on her Facebook page she states: "I don't care if it's 4am - I don't consider it tomorrow until I wake up."
