When somebody says "I am surprised that...", does it mean to express not only surprise but also some level of disappointment or disapproval?
If somebody uses that expression when speaking with me, I feel somewhat annoyed and guilty. It feels like there is some subtle expression of disapproval and even annoyance on the part of the speaker that they can't openly express.
Would a native speaker of English interpret this expression the way I do? Or would it depend not only on the expression but also on the manner of expressing it?
