I wouldn't want to hear or smell them farting, so I certainly don't want to hear them blowing their nose with all the slurpy snot coming out.

They can go outside to do it. :-)

I agree that if angry means out of control, then avoid angry, absolutely. But I have seen "angry" in a low-tone or projecting, it could be called serious, firm, or no-nonsense.

That's the language they hear at home, so it's "normal" vocabulary for them.
