News of a minor accident involving a Mercedes-Benz Roadster And Rare Ferrari is spreading like wildfire across the internet today, causing many people to become distressed at the high level of schadenfreude it is triggering within them.
Psychologists want to reassure normally sympathetic people who may be alarmed at the unexpected pleasure they are experiencing over this.
“As long as no-one is getting hurt, it’s perfectly healthy to find yourself smirking when someone who probably earns more money taking a dump than you’ll see in your entire life has a silly accident that damages expensive vanity toys.”
We asked some local Pittsburghers how they felt about it, and – proving again what a kind and generous people we are – many felt sorry for those involved.
Sharon Purdy of East Hills was one such person…
“I can empathize with the driver of the Mercedes Benz 380SL as I also once lost my concentration parallel parking and backed up into another vehicle.”
Until she wasn’t…
“Except I was driving a beat up 1989 Toyota Corolla – this was last year by the way – and now I have no car because it was totaled by the insurance company and I can’t afford to replace it. HaHaHa stupid Benz driver.”
Dan Sevens from South Oakland said he didn’t feel sorry for the driver who caused the impact, but has some pity for the person who did nothing wrong.
“I sorta feel bad for the owner of the other car who had to return to their Ferrari 458 Speciale to find it all banged up. Only joking. Fuck that guy!”
