Then there is the guy who just HAS to do everything you do...you have a journal, he started a journal. You have a forum on greenspun, he started a forum on greenspun.
Oh wait, that's me.

Envied me ? No. Along the way there were a few who wished to have a goody or two of mine who really had not the desire to work for them as I did. Some who wished they had my wife -- but, luckily I chased her first and she took pity on me. My kids have been a source of envy, and I thank my higher power that they were born to us.

She doggedly attacked me behind my back until her boyfriend (my "best friend") finally stopped talking to me until they broke up.

my cousin. everytime she is around me, her whole attitude changes. She starts insulting me and acting superior toward me and criticizing me. When I asked her if she envied me, her head practically blew off from anger---why? Because she was SOOOO mad that I have got things that she doesn't. She also copies off of almost everything that I say and do. You can tell people envy you, because when you talk to them, they may seem distant and they belittle you a lot and copy off of you.
