I think that would be termed Ironic Justice.... *shrug*
: : So, I get super fucking sick for the past few days (I think I got vertigo or something), and can't go to Warped Tour. My friend, who somehow or another got the tickets for free, has to give the ticket to someone else. Where's the revenge come in? It rains all fucking day today, and he's standing in the middle of a muddy-ass field for like, twelve hours. Muahahahaha!!!
: Revenge means you would have had to do something to get back at your friend, because your friend did something wrong to you. But in your story, (A) you did absolutely nothing and (B) your friend didn't do anything wrong. It's not revenge so much as you enjoying the fact that your friend had a bad time. Is there a word for that?
