Not to be confused with Sigmund

I take little delight in openly mocking and humiliating my staff here at Unlikely Solution Ltd, and, of course, by that I mean I take great delight in the subliminally sneering and subtlety snide craft of belittlement. The artfully muttered part-phrase “ ... as a chocolate fire-guard” or “ ... run a chip shop” or “ ... in a brewery” requires the target subject to subject themselves to the humiliation of mentally supplying the rest of insult, thus adding insult to, well, insult. I believe German engineers have a technical term for this style of management: Schadenfreude.
