Follow the unfortunate : They have more to teach you and you can laugh at them to make yourself feel better.
This is pure Schadenfreude.
From the German for sausage-stealer.
To steal someone’s sausages is the colloquial expression for deflating someone’s balloon while blowing into your own.
Lowering their status and increasing your personal joy.
A bit like sarcasm. The lowest form of wit as they say.
The joy in another’s misfortune is still joy,just like sarcasm is still wit.
I am talking mental balloons here. No real balloons were harmed in the making of this post.
It could be I have some words mixed up : Wurstdiebstahl - The wurst is harm-joy. Schadenfraude - sausage stealer Another wednesday, another one line,that is never one line.
