I’m looking for a word that describes your state when something is not how you expected it to be. Not in a pleasant way but the opposite.
Is baffled appropriate? But I think baffled doesn’t really show any emotion but just a sense of confusion. Also baffled expresses in a large quantity. I want something of less magnitude.
I don’t want to express something mysterious. It's like I expected something and I got it. But with something else that I don’t like. If that makes any sense.
I want to use it in a sentence like this one:
The overall experience was a pleasant one, don’t get me wrong. But a few things _________ me and made me wonder if it's the harsh truth.
