the Germans should have a word for it

1. The frustration on discovering that, if the news had only been posted a couple of hours earlier, you could have attended another free concert in the same town that you drove to for the day yesterday to attend a concert in.

2. The relief on finding one's missing cell phone, combined with the self-irritation at realizing that it must have been there since last night, and that one therefore went the whole day before realizing it was not in the pocket where it belonged.

3. The satisfaction on performing the righteous physical exercise of spending an hour walking to the post office and back to mail some bills, while listening to Allan Sherman songs, many of them about being overweight, on random shuffle all the way.
