My friend broke up with her boyfriend. It was pretty traumatic for her, and in the course of talking to her about it I mentioned that "at least we wouldn't have to go and see his terrible bluegrass band anymore." About a month later they got back together. I was not invited to anymore shows, and I felt bad about making fun of him while they were broken up. About six months later they broke up again. I empathize with her now, and at least I didn't have to go see his band anymore.
