    Meaning of "Upset"

    So, today I had a little argument with my english teacher about the meaning of "Upset", or "Being upset".

    In my opinion it means angry.
    So if someone says "Don't make me upset!" than the person means "Don't make me angry!".

    In the teachers opinion it means being sad.
    So if someone says(Quoting from english book): "I'm so upset, that I didn't get an invitation to the party" means "I'm so sad, that I didn't get an invitation to the party.

    I'm asking you, because alot of you are native english speakers, and know these thing better than me, or my teacher.

    I think it Depends on the Context you use it In!

    For Example You said:
    So if someone says "Don't make me upset!" than the person means "Don't make me angry!".
    Which is Correct but because your teacher used it in a different context she is also correct!
