Wondrous Words Wednesday



Wondrous Words Wednesday

I thought this was an interesting word.

Schadenfruede-is pleasure derived from another's misfortune.

  1. That's a sad word when you really think about it.

  2. It's a terribly sad word, but the feel of the German in my mouth takes me back t high school. :-)

  3. Hi Mary Ann,

    Having never studied German at school, I must admit that from a lay-man's perspective, Schadenfruede sounds like a very harsh word for such a sad definition.

    My school-day French not being quite up to the task, I 'googled' the French translation of the German word and came back with 'malin-plaisir', which definitely sounds a little kinder!

    Thanks for sharing :)

  5. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
