upset/angry

Postby wowenglish » Mon Jul 30, 2012 11:27 pm

Is there any difference in the meaning between (1) and (2)?
1. I'm upset that you didn't call.
2. I'm angry that you didn't call.

Why, there is certain difference between being angry and being upset. Anger makes one to shout, to fight, while being upset rather to cry or to whimp [in the corner {-: ]. Another (or just close in meaning) word for upset is frustrated.

But anyway I believe you should take care of tenses, i.e. it's better to say either "Iam upset/angry because you don't call me" or "I was upset/angry because you didn't call me"
