    Question Interjection for expressing that you are out of patience

    Hi, :)

    To express your relief you would say: phew
    to express your disgust, you would say: eww

    What interjection would you use to express that you are out of patience or that you are annoyed by what someone is doing.

    In Arabic we say "uff!"

    What do you say in English?

    Thanks

    Re: Interjection for expressing that you are out of patience

    I have heard people say "Aarrgh" in such situations. This can be spelled with any number of a's, r's, g's, and h's you please, and is actually pronounced /arg/, as in the first syllable of the word argument. It's supposed to represent a scream when appearing in written text, but I've heard it spoken in this manner when someone is very frustrated or out of patience.
