There are times in life when you are happy, but happy on your own. This may be because you rejoice in the pain of others, because you take advantage of the misery of the world or simply because no one really gives a damn about what makes you happy. Enjoy the little pleasures in life, even if everyone is super jealous.
1. During the funeral of your life annuity seller
It’s crying everywhere around you, people are throwing flowers on the coffin and you can’t help but gloat inside. That’s it, the old man is dead and you can get his house back. Finally… YOUR house. The family looks down on you because they wanted to inherit the shack with a view of the sea but you don’t care, too bad for them.
2. That moment when you’re too drunk and everyone has to take care of you
There are evenings that end worse than others and strangely, you can never remember when it went wrong. Anyway, the extra drink is long gone and all your friends have to take care of you so you don’t get lost while you’re singing at the top of your voice.
3. When you leave your grandparents after a family meal
When you go to your grandparents for lunch from noon to 5 p.m., everyone is surprised when you finally leave. “Oh no, stay a little longer! We were going to make rummy! “. Well yes, but no, because you just want to go home or go see your friends instead of spending the evening with your uncles and aunts.
4. When you’re too lazy to go out and you find out the party is canceled
Oh damn, it’s too stupid, the evening is canceled. You shouldn’t be thrilled, but you are because you were watching a show in your bed in your pajamas. The idea of having to get up, shower, get dressed, go out and wait for the bus was absolutely unbearable.
5. When you win money with a scratch ticket
There are plenty of times when your friends are happy for you, but winning at gambling isn’t one of them. Everyone would have liked to win and now you are the only one to pocket the money. You could share… except no actually, it’s out of the question.
6. When you resell your festival ticket for 3 times its price
It’s disgusting, it’s indecent, but you do it anyway. You knew very well that everyone was going to snatch up tickets for this summer festival when you bought your ticket and you’re glad you waited until the last moment to rob a poor party aficionado. Your place in hell is well guarded, don’t worry.
7. When your child goes potty alone
In the series of parenting wins no one cares about, the first time on the pot is surely the worst. It’s always a bit embarrassing to see people marvel at a poo, even if it’s a baby’s. You want to shout it from the rooftops but unfortunately, no one is interested.
8. When you fart on the bus and no one knows it’s you
You tried to hold back but when the fart finally broke free, you couldn’t help but laugh inside. You scan people’s faces for the funny change in expression as the smell hits their nostrils. You’re evil, but it’s kinda funny all the same.
9. When you were 20 minutes late for class but the teacher was too
When the teacher is late, all the students are drunk to have waited 20 minutes in the corridor and to see him arrive when they were going to leave. And then there’s you who arrives like a flower a minute before the teacher: you were able to sleep 15 more minutes and you didn’t have to wait, the good life what.
10. When you do a perfect in the bathroom
It’s the perfect example: you’re super happy but you can’t share it with anyone. The ideal is to have friends to whom we can talk about our poo without any embarrassment.
