comment What's an exact word for someone who's unhappy when others do well?
I wonder now if game theory has some formal Latin term for it or something. The two teams have a zero-sum relationship between each other as they fight for total wins in the regular season, and certain players on a team are competing for the same position, and may be forced to exhibit zero-sum competitive behavior, but what then do you call the ..false-positive (for lack of a better term) of that behavior or frame of mind? Like when a 6yo becomes hurt and indignant when his 5yo little brother is cherished by the parents for doing something well?

“Joe updated the database to reflect the position change.” : )

Maybe give a specific example, because it sounds to me unclear, as well as redundant. Is he simply changing a Netflix queue 10th item to the 1st, or changing a database table record (with multiple one-to-many linked relational tables) from the “Marketing” Department to “Sales” – so the entire report Form changes, frequency, audience, etc. - by changing that one database field value? “report relationship” and “position number” need to be defined, for me to help anyway.

comment How does “found-in-a-cabbage-patch look” look?
I just found this: The Cabbage Fairy (1896) (La Fée aux Choux) - one of the earliest narrative fiction films ever made.
