Yes, not everyone appreciates the hard work it takes to be consistently miserable, refusing to be cheered up because you're blessed with the knowledge that life will just turn around and kick you in the onions. I always loved this short passage form Alasdair Gray's novel '1982 Janine': "...I was sure we were all becoming too lucky too fast. I felt as my mother possibly felt the morning when the postman, delivering a parcel, told her it was going to be a fine warm summer day. She said grimly, 'We'll pay for it'."
SAHIP - my sentiments exactly.
