Making players squirm in small doses is one of the perks (and I daresay one of the responsibilities) of running a tabletop RPG. Whether that's through setting off a trap, initiating combat with a dragon, or presenting the players an obvious but heart-tugging moral choice. It's evil fun for the whole family (but actually just one person).

Making the PCs squirm is a fun aspect of being the DM. And players eventually get their chance to turn those tables when they make the DM squirm through his boss characters.

I took pride at the table whenever a player would whisper "Damn you, Digo." after I spring some evil twist into the story that catches them by surprise. :D
