Frustrated vs Annoyed

I was telling the boy yesterday about how annoyed I am that the results of the application and interview will now not be known until next week …. ugh

the reason is that some people missed their assessments and were given a new chance to be assessed and attend an interview …. which I don’t mind but I know a few are just doing it for the interview experience and have no interest in actually taking the job… I’m annoyed by this

The boy insists that annoyed is anger, the feeling a step before violence, and surely I’m not on the border of violence …. so we agreed I am frustrated,

today I looked their meanings up

frus·trat·ed [fruhs-trey-tid]



disappointed; thwarted: an announcer who was a frustrated actor.

having a feeling of or filled with frustration;  dissatisfied: His unresolved difficulty left him absolutely frustrated.

an·noy  (uh-noi)

tr.v. an·noyed, an·noy·ing, an·noys

1. To cause slight irritation to (another) by troublesome, often repeated acts.
2. Archaic To harass or disturb by repeated attacks.

while their meanings are different, they really aren’t that different, certainly not so far apart as disappointment and anger

I would actually lean towards saying, I am frustrated and annoyed that the day of knowing has been shifted not once (from Tuesday to Friday)but twice (from Friday to sometime next week)

he also tells me to stop worrying about it, its not a big deal I was uncertain whether I wanted to go for it to start with…. Um yeah to me it is and I was uncertain that he’d be ok with my shifts changing and the extra distance I’d have to travel
