When I'm seriously annoyed with more than one person at a given time, I generally assume that the problem is me and look to my own behavior to see if I'm being pissy in a way that is causing other people to act in annoying ways, or, indeed, if I'm being oversensitive.
Also, when I feel I owe someone an apology, I usually wait until I can apologize with no qualifiers. I don't go for the "Well, I'm sorry I reacted that way, but if you had just..." brand of apology.
Neither of those strategies is working for me at the moment.
It is the end of August. I think we're all annoyed with each other. :)
