He doesn't admit to the bored. I'm sure he feels it some times. But when I detect "bored" from him, I call him on it and it instantly changes to denial and defensiveness which I greatly prefer. :)

Bored seems much worse than angry to me. I've heard of therapists telling their therapist that they're bored. Or that they don't seem connected today, which I'm pretty sure is the therapy euphemism for bored.

Mine is probably more likely to be irritated that I'm focussing on something we already covered (and should have fixed by now) or that doesn't seem to be important to him. Which usually leads to a spirited exchange of why it's important to *me*, and while that leads into the territory of anger again, it also helps him understand what's going on better. Which I like better than him sitting there being bored without trying to find out why I'm blabbering on and on about something.
