Aggravate, Irritate and Annoy
3/7/17 Aggravate, Irritate and Annoy
Can you tell it’s Monday? 😉
Misusing aggravate (to worsen a condition, but not really to irk a person) can really irritate (annoy) some readers. And if you have irritated them by that misuse in conversation, you will only aggravate the situation if you commit the same error in writing.
