    Red face fed up, upset, angry

    1) I am fed up with the company policy
    2) I am upset with the company policy
    3) I am angry with the company policy


    What are the differences among the above sentences?
    Any other meanings / usage of fed up?

    Thanks

    The only differences have to do with duration.

    In many cases:

    upset is short
    angry is longer term and more serious
    fed up is the longest; chronic anger

    That's pretty much it for "fed up". When one is fed up one has had enough; it is all over.
