English vocabulary: How to talk about anger

When my friend shouted at me, I felt irritated (little angry). I listened to him carefully and found he wanted me to do a piece of work. I did that work although I was annoyed (little angry).

Note: for mild anger we can use two more adjectives such as miffed and peeved.

He started shouting at me again since he didn't want to do any household chores, and I became furious (extremely angry).

However, I do not feel furious without a strong reason. I asked him, "Why am I supposed to do everything?" He signaled me to leave his home, and I turned acrimonious (full of anger, argument, and bad feeling.) as he invited me to stay at his home when I didn't want go there.

I think anyone will feel acrimonious if he/she is told to leave the place all of sudden without any valid reason.

I left his home without a further thought. He invited me for his birthday party after six months. By that time, our relation became rancorous (having a feeling of hate and continuous anger about something in past), and I spoke to him as if I didn't know him. Having felt rancorous I could not say yes to him. I listened to him and hung up the phone.

I was full of rage (a period of extreme or violent anger) when I ended conversation with him. I was bursting with anger (full of anger) after talking to him.
