Word of the day: Schadenfreude
Schaden meaning adversity or harm, and Freude meaning joy. More specifically, it means finding joy in another's adversity.
A while back I recounted the tale of the Norwegian tourist who confused us with a different dealer at Portobello. Irksome. Not because the dealer was competition but because the dealer lowered the tone both visually and intellectually. Today I saw that very dealer pack and move all his wares. Not an easy task. Why? Because the Fire Officer finally noticed that he was blocking the fire exit.
Tisk, tisk, tisk.
Now, how does this differ from just being a cold hearted bitch you may ask? A cold hearted bitch would have actually called the Fire Officer. I, on the other hand, am merely enjoying the serendipity of it all.
