astonish, surprise; astound
fill with wonder and amazement.
The flabbergasted boy screamed and ran away.
I was flabbergasted when the magician made the cow fly.
Memory trick: Our FLAB jumps like GAS when we giggle from surprise.
Used at work:
I am flabbergasted we made the deadline. I thought we would miss it.
