The ultimate expression of empathy.
"Sucks to be you" is actually the most honest, heartfelt expression one can say that truly shows one's appreciation of what it must be like being in somebody else's shoes.

Often used in meaning you have created the situation yourself and you should suffer for it for your own stupidity. Conservatives love to use it and imply it's a lack of 'personal responsibility' for the person under going the hardship or bad situation. It can also tie into darwinism and the idea it's survival of the most fit or having the most prepared minds.
A guy tells a woman online that he got divorced and now has to pay child support. She says, it's your own fault for not getting to know her better and it sucks to be you!

Something you say to someone when something happens to them (or they are in a situation) that you do not envy and would not want to have happen to you (or would not want to be in a similar situation.)
First Student: I wish I hadn't taken 7 courses this term... I have so much homework I won't be able to make it to the party this weekend.
Second Student: Sucks to be you! I only took 4 bird courses this term. I am home free for the weekend and I will be front and centre at the party.
