Fretful \Fret"ful\, a. [See 2d Fret.]
Disposed to fret; ill-humored; peevish; angry; in a state of
vexation; as, a fretful temper. -- Fret"ful*ly, adv. --
Syn: Peevish; ill-humored; ill-natured; irritable; waspish;

Usage: Fretful, Peevish, Cross. These words all
indicate an unamiable working and expression of
temper. Peevish marks more especially the inward

complaining impatience: sickly children are apt to be
fretful. Crossness is peevishness mingled with
vexation or anger.
