baffle (verb) confuse completely; bewilder; perplex.

When something or what someone does baffles you, it confuses you completely; you canít understand or explain it at all. A person's behavior baffles you if you cannot understand or explain why they behave so; so different is it from their usual behavior. He is baffled by his wife buying so much gold - this means, he is just unable to understand and a bit confused as to why she is buying off gold like that. You are baffled if someone expected certainly to attend a function at your home doesn't attend it. That is, their failure to attend confuses you completely, and you don't find an explanation for it.
