This is a question Schadenfreude

There's nothing like administering first aid to cyclist who has just spanged into the back of a milk float when you have tears of laughter running down your face. The world is just one long episode of You've Been Framed - when have you laughed at the misfortune of others?

Chili night
Rick, my work mate, seems a pretty normal guy. Keeps himself to himself most of the time so it was quite surprising to hear him tell this story that kinda changed our opinion of him.

He was on his way home from on a (previous job's) works do and was at a London station waiting for his train. He overheard an elderly gentleman ask a scallywag nearby to pick up the litter that he'd just dropped.
"Fuck off" was the reply this gent got. Not happy (although obviosuly fairly "merry") Rick thought that this youngster wasn't showing enough respect.
"Oi. Don't talk to someone like that.. Have some respect"
"Sorry mate, you talking to me?"
As the young chav approached and shoved Rick, Rick hit out and struck him on the jaw.
The chav backed off and went round a corner.

A few minutes later, Rick's train came in, but as he was about to get on he saw the lad return but this time with 2 bigger guys.
The choices were apparent:
* get on train and hide
* confront them

Not only did he (unsurprisingly) decide to confront them, he thought he should just steam straight in rather than risk being caught off-guard.
So steam in he did.
Right into this lad and the 2 plain-clothed policeman that the lad had reported the earlier scuffle to.

Needless to say he spent the night in the cells but was allowed home when he'd explained his actions and sobered up.

We don't drink that often with Rick. (or Rickll and Hyde, as he is know in these parts)
