Feelings aren't always rational. If you ask someone why they like someone, sure they can list off a bunch of reasons, but it really comes down to them just liking that person. You can't always rationalize what you are feeling.
Feelings aren't exactly rational, so even if it is "rational" to respond to something a certain way, your feelings are still and "irrational" or an "emotional" response. Your feelings are there to tell you something about yourself you might not know, perhaps revealing an insecurity or an unresolved issue within yourself. Managing emotions is difficult, but accepting what you're feeling and learning what that feeling is teaching you is a good first step.
Our emotions are our choice which are triggered by our own thoughts. Nobody puts us in a situation wherein we feel irrational or angry or irritated. We make it habbit that irrespective of any situation we will be in peace and we will think clamly then automatically, whenever such event gets triggered my thoughts will guid me to be peaceful and look at the bigger picture first.

Because you are all work up and you usually have too wait till you calm down. You just put your body through a lot of stress so you will feel this way a little bit.
There is a big difference between a thought and a feeling. I like to think of it as a thought is from the head and a feeling is from the heart. You can think/know it may be irrational, but that doesn't mean your body doesn't think it is. I know that can be hard and confusing, but something is making your body feel the way that it does and it is completely rational to it!
