Seeing this in the grinch
Here the Grinch was hearing the singing and was overwhelmed with anger until the singing stopped. This is unusual because even if singing makes you frustrated it should drive you to desire to destroy a town.
When the Grinch started acting irrational and taking every christmas item from the houses he was happy the entire time.

The Grinch took on a lot and wanted it all to go up the mountain. This is showing how the Grinch was taking on more than he could handle and while he was doing this he was getting frustrated and acting irrational.
