DH and his work mates are stuck on a 'your mum is' habit and it's super frustrating! It seemed like at one point every time I made a statement or asked him a question DH would retort with 'your mum.' Arghmongers! You're 28, not 8! Thankfully a long-suffering employee instituted a 'your mum' jar and they might stop soon.
People who hash tag things on facebook (which is a twitter thing). Actually, people on facebook. It seems like that site is an open invitation for people to be the annoying selves that they truly are!
People who say 'Yeah...but' when you're trying to voice your opinion about something. Could they be any more obvious that they're not taking on board anything you're saying?
All these things make me want to interact with a brick wall instead!
As for having being married for 6 years and not yet produced any children, it's fun to watch the looks shock and awkwardness on people's faces when I come back at their 'why no children?' questions with 'oh, we've just started IVF.' Yeah, bet you're sorry now for asking, right? Shall I give you a detailed explanation of how the hormones work?

This thread makes me want to slap all these people. There are really some insensitive jerks out there.

Women (unfortunately it tends to be mainly women) who have to justify why they eat anything. At a high tea I went to every person there made some excuse before eating a cake, or a 2nd cake. "Well I AM going to the gym later," and "Well, I won't need dinner," etc. Just eat the cake!!
People who tell you all about themselves in very literal terms. E.g., "Well I'm the kind of person who wouldn't hurt a fly. I'm the type of person who, if you said blah blah blah, would be the first person there to help you out/ do something heroic, etc."
People who talk too much about compliments they have received. I don't mean the excited "Wow! Someone said I'd lost weight/ have great hair!" type comments.
I mean: "John said 'Mary, there is no way we could cope without you - we would literally be dead without your awesome leadership.' And I said that was nice of him, but then Sarah said 'That's right, Mary. You are the best thing in the world.' And it's funny, because I just do what I have to do. You know, I'm the kind of person who always helps out. I'm the type of person who takes charge of any situation. But it's great that all the team were there saying 'Mary, you are SO SO awesome.'"

When people find out that my kids have anaphylaxis allergies and you get -
'oh, it's because of what you ate when you were pregnant.'
'Oh they have allergies because you were too overprotective with food when they were a baby'
'Well to cure that you just need to feed them small amounts of the foods they are allergic to so they build up immunity to it.'
