Schadenfreude
The Drop and Give Me Fifty word of the day, by birdofparadox:

schadenfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\, noun:
A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of
others.


Armed with her steeled self-righteousness, my roommate exaggerated every flaw she saw in me. Soon her disgust became a source of amusement for her, laughter she spread to others on our dorm floor and among our shared friends.

She seemed to forget how she'd committed the same social sins she criticized in me. And on the lovely day when her life crumbled around her mistakes, I cradled and covered my solemn and bitter schadenfreude, quietly hiding it within myself, my melancholy smiles its only outward sign.
