- I'll continue talking to you when you have finished your angry?
- I think "...........when you're not angry with me anymore" is better, right?

Thanks a lot!

    "Finished being angry" is grammatically correct, but I doubt anyone would actually say that in the above context. At the very least, I'd say "when you're done being angry" or "when you're through being angry." "When you've finished being angry" sounds odd to me. Am I the only one?

    Elroy's suggestions or ... when you've stopped being angry.
    Finished suggests a sense of control that doesn't seem appropriate in the context of anger.
