Hmmmm... No schadenfreude here... Is there a German word for "heartless annoyance with other people's pain"?

Girl #1: My grandmother lives in the room next to me and is always crying and in, like, pain, because she is dying and it makes me want to shoot myself in my head with a 12-gauge.
Girl #2: I completely understand.

-- Starbucks, overheard by Kyle and Denise

I'm all for poking fun at the next village idiot, but in this case the girl is clearly upset. We should not find humour in other people's pain. Lack of class on the part of the person who submitted this one.

I wondered why it made it here myself. Nothing funny here. Silly or not, this girl atleast sounds concerned and I don't sense apathy in this.
I don't think it should be here.

One word for all you morons who are criticising, and it is "context". Obviously, if the person is talking about it in a Starbucks, or in public for that matter, and loud enough for someone to hear it, something must obviously be wrong with her. Also, look at the language she uses, like "12 gauge" any Napoleon Dynamite fan could see the allusion.

C'mon guys think.

I think the ridiculousness in this one was more about what Girl #1 was saying than her friend's response. From the sound of what she was overheard saying, she's more exasperated with the noise her grandmother is making than anything else. That would explain the title, too.

this is a blog we don't have sound effects here or did you not notice moron anon#2? Chill out ok?

So to readers who weren't present there the blog speaks for itself since we dont have the background info. jeez.
And anon above: didnt pay much attention to the title but it kinda makes sense now. thx.

Hey everybody, quit living in a world that is so FUCKING OVERLY POLITICALLY CORRECT.

Take your thumbs out of your asses and quit being so sensitive. You cry like a puppy with one leg. Suck it up.
