Why does being drawn out on hurt more than making a bad play?

Bubbled yesterday in 12 bounty tournament finished 23 with 20 playing. Played a $2 bounty tournament earlier today and lost because I didn't believe that the guy two to my left had aces twice in five hands. Then this:

Turn (board: 8c 2s 8h Ad):
River (board: 8c 2s 8h Ad 9s):

SluggerWV has Qc Qs 8c 8h Ad: two pair, queens and eights.

Harpoon wins 3770 with two pair, aces and nines.
Now I have played with this guy before. He absolutely loves overcards so the call pre-flop was to avoid an ace. It is so frustrating to have this happen. Am I the only one who takes no solace in the fact that he made a horrible play? The injustice of it all outweighs any satisfaction from playing the hand well.

good luck at the tables
