This is a question I'm glad nobody saw me

Have you ever done something, realised how stupid or embarrassing it was and then looked about to see if anyone watching? Did you get away with it?

Nobody Died, That Time
College students in New Mexico have too much time on their hands, and too many guns.

One time, I was in a dorm room with several friends, when I picked up a pistol that was said to be unloaded, pointed it at a friend's midsection, and pulled the trigger. Surprisingly, given the owner's reputation for sloppy arms-keeping, the pistol was unloaded. I was seen, and chastised (particularly by my startled friend).

Six months later, the gun's owner suffered brain damage in a motorcycle wreck. He returned only slowly to his studies, but remained just as sloppy with arms as ever. One day, another one of his friends took advantage of his slowness, locked him in his own bathroom, stole a pistol from where he had laid it on a desk, and took it away to kill another person who had been an annoyance. This fellow was seen, and chastised, but only too late.

So your story about nobody being seen is?

The moral of the tale is even those with brain damage get to keep arms, totally sweet

Isn't it obvious?!
The slow guy locked in the loo was glad he didn't see the 'annoyance' being shot with his stolen gun. Marc V, being an empathic sort of guy, enjoyed that feeling of gladness by proxy.

Gladness by Proxy
Closely related to 'Schadenfreude', but with less oom-pah-pah.
