    that you came late/your late coming

    "Your late coming made me angry."

    Is this sentence correct in terms of grammar?

    (I mean with this sentence above:
    "That you had come late made me angry.")
    I have no English teacher, I try to improve my language on my own. Thanks for your help.

    Re: that you came late/your late coming

    "Your coming late," not "your late coming."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
