Schadenfreude

Son #1 is thrilled that all the jerky people he knows are experiencing difficulties. The drug dealer is up on charges. The girl who cut herself for popularity's sake is now cutting herself because she's miserable. The guy who drives everyone nuts got suspended for cursing over the school PA system.

Son #4 looks up at him and says, "You really shouldn't have so much schadenfreude."

Damn, I feel good.

Wow, great new word! Where'd he find that one?

That's sad about the girl. I wouldn't be surprised if the for popularity's sake was just a front to begin with. :-(
