\ SHOD-n-froy-duh \ , noun;
A malicious satisfaction obtained from the misfortunes of others.
I have a list of people in my life who indulge in this. And they aren't the kind of people I can remove from our lives. I can deal with them OK, but I do find them to drain me of energy, suck life out of a room, and the like. I wish I had some magic fairy dust I could sprinkle on them so they could be happy for others and share in their joy. Know where I can buy some?
