YOU FEEL FRUSTRATED WHEN? (When do you feel frustrated?)
The sign FRUSTRATED can actually serve as a conjunction. Meaning? You could sign, I DRIVE-to STORE, FRUSTRATED, CLOSED. I DRIVE BANK, FRUSTRATED,
CLOSED, I DRIVE HOME.
The sign "FRUSTRATED" in those situations would mean "and it was" as well as
expressing the feeling of frustration. When you use "FRUSTRATED" as a conjunction you only use a single
movement. (You smack your face just once--not twice--for the conjunction
version). I know it is hard for some of your to only smack yourself once,
and you may indeed deserve the extra smacking-- but try to control yourself
for the sake of good signing when doing conjunctions. Thanks, I appreciate
