Author mentalities that I don't and NEVER WILL understand!

I just want to ask a simple question...
How can Angst and Fluff be in the same genre?
Like seriously...angst is full of sadness and anger and tears....while fluff on the other had is full of sweet and loving and happy times...
How can a story be angst and fluff at the same time?
Ok...authors can say angst for the first half and fluff for the second...BUT...I think a better tag will be "angst, happy ending"...
The worst and funniest genre I saw is...
ANGST AND COMEDY?
How can an angst story be comedy? They are just the EXACT OPPOSITE of each other in meaning...
This is not only seen in AFF but also on LJ...
Shouldn't people check up on the meaning of "angst" before you put it together with fluff or comedy...please...

Listing them together is like telling people my story is "non-fiction" but it is "sci-fi" too...if this doesn't make sense to you...do you think angst and fluff makes sense?
I think authors should give genre a thought before listing it on the story...
Think through your storyline...plan the main theme of the story...this way...you can get the main theme and the main genre of the story...
Just not Angst with comedy or angst with fluff...it is just very weird...it seems like the full meaning of the story theme is unknown or the story is just planned half way...
