People who are frightened or otherwise emotionally upset often resort to rationalizations in order to calm themselves down. Like, sometimes close relatives don't cry or show any signs of being upset in funerals, even though they feel very upset inside. I think it comes down to personality -- some people are just wired the kind of way that they don't show much emotions to the outside world. Actually, I think quite a lot of people who are interested in computers are that kind of people. What I'm trying to say is that you can't really judge if a person is upset or not by reading his account of something that happened.
