It happens to all of us sometimes, and it's perfectly acceptable to ask for an explanation.

I'd like to note that while acceptable to ask for an explanation, it is downright counterproductive to be petulant. Don't bother getting upset until you know why.

I'm not sure it's possible to avoid getting upset in the short run. However, it's a good idea to avoid showing upset until you find out something about what's going on.
