English needs a new word — German, I’m sure, has a nice long word for this already, but English is lacking. We need a word that means, “The feeling you get when someone else being a jackass sparks the self-realization that you have recently, completely avoidably and completely obliviously, been a huge asshole yourself”.

I’d use a word like that a fair amount, I bet.
