Ways of Showing Anger

Expressions like the following express annoyance:

What a nuisance!
That’s typical!
That’s just what I needed!
Good grief!
 
If we are in a bad mood, we sometimes get sarcastic and say things like this:
 
That’s charming, that is! That’s wonderful!
That’s absolutely great!
It was very nice of him to …

When we are more angry, we sometimes use swear words like these:

Damn!
Hell!
Bloody Hell!

More obscene expressions should be avoided because they may offend a lot of people. And if we are absolutely furious we are more likely to lose our tempers completely and say:

I’ve just about had enough of …
What a stupid bloody idiot!
Why the hell don’t they …
It makes me sick the way they …
It makes my blood boil when this sort of thing happens!
absolutely hết sức, tuyệt đối
