The word for this week’s Wednesday Word is frustrate! It’s what’s happening to my daughter’s plans for college and it also how I feel right now!
Prevent (a plan or attempted action) from progressing, succeeding, or being fulfilled: “his attempt to frustrate the merger”.
Prevent (someone) from doing or achieving something.
foil – defeat – thwart – disappoint – baffle
The evil college admissions officer frustrated our plans of attending the school with their lack of compassion for the situation we were faced with financially.
My frustration is linked to the behavior of adults more so than the behavior of children.
See! It can be used in soooo many ways!
