Do these all work?
1. It makes me angry when you don't try your hardest.
2. It makes me angry to see you not try your hardest.
3. It makes me angry to see that you don't try your hardest.
4. Any other better ones?
Thank you.

Thank you for the quickest reply.
1. It makes me angry when you don't try your hardest.
On the specific occasions when he doesn't try his hardest, 'it' (i.e. the 'not trying') makes her angry.
2. It makes me angry that you don't try your hardest.
Generally, he doesn't try his hardest; and that's what makes her angry.

So yogi is right. For me, English 'it' is sometimes difficult to catch what 'it' eactly indicates.
