    preposition for 'Frustration'

    Hey,
    Which preposition should I use with (in this case) frustration?

    "I remember my share of night screaming at my computer's screen with/in frustration?"

    To me (non native), they both sound right. So maybe there's a difference in meaning which i'd like to know.

    thanks!

    "with frustration" would not work in that sentence.

    There is no need to write a new post to say "Thanks". Simply click on the "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
