Uncomfortable Vs. Annoying

A quick one: A friend of mine asked, what's the difference between uncomfortable and annoying? The way I saw it, uncomfortable is actually good for you; it forces you to challenge assumptions about yourself and your worldview. Annoying is just, well, annoying. Not challenging, not conducive to insight. Just irritating. Not every gadfly serves a valid social function; sometimes they're just wolves in jerks' clothing.
