    Thank you.
    While your "thank you" is appreciated, it should occupy a separate line.
    A better title for this thread would be Angry/angrily.

    Allow?

    To me, these two sentences sound a bit different. While the first describes the person's mental state, the second could indicate the manner in which he left the place - he might have said something rude or slammed the door. However, feeling angry doesn't imply the actions above.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, sirs.
