    To get angry is to become angry. To go from not being angry to being angry. People get angry when something happens to make them angry.

    Chris got angry with the children when they made noise and woke him up.

    Chris was angry with the children after they woke him up.

    !. is relative to the present. Maybe it should read Chris became angry rather than got.

    2. is in the past, was.

    They mean the same thing and are both correct, you can say it either way.

    You can say “I am getting angry”

    Which would mean you are presently getting angry, meaning right now

    Then there is “I got angry” which is past tense, it is something that happened before

    Then you can say “I am angry” which is another way to say that you are presently angry

    Then you would say “I was angry” and it is past tense
