    For me it is when you get hurt but like really bad and people ask you if you are okay....

    Do you mind me asking? Just ASK!!

    Hubpages told me my answer was too short so I'm adding this little extra just to get through the filter ;-)

    When you tell a really long story and someone walks up at the end of it and asks, "What happened?"

    That's simple for me: I'm a twin, so the question that irritates me the most, because people always asks, Is it you or your brother?

    Skinny people asking "Does this make me look fat?". Waste of my time!

    I can't stand when a grocery store clerk asks you "Did you find everything you're looking for?"  You always answer yes, even if you didn't, because you don't want to be the person complaining about not finding something with four people waiting in line right behind you!  If you want me to find everything, maybe put more than one hard-to-find 16 year old on the floor!!!

    "Are you done?" Especially when it's a discussion or an argument.

    Are you okay? It somehow irritates me specially if I look like I'm not okay.

    Someone saying, "Are you sure.", after someone has already given an answer irritates me.

    I would say the most annoying question of all time is, What's wrong? Whether it is from a friend or family member, It seems this question always comes up when someone is quieter than normal and most likely not in a great mood. This seems to be the one question that will be asked over and over. Does anyone like answering this question? Even if it is just because of a bad mood, this question makes my attitude even worse. Just leave me alone.

    I'm a quiet person, always have been, so the most annoying question I get asked is, "Why are you so quiet?" I've never had an answer that satisfied the asker.

    What irritates me the most is after I've told a long story and then the person ask, what you said? And i have to go all over again!

    "What are you doing?" I hate that question. If someone took the time to notice what I was doing, it could be completly evident.

    I especially hate it when I am asked that question during sex.

    My husband had back surgery 6 years ago. His back is fine but he has permanent spinal cord damage and nerve pain due to that damage. People are always asking me "How is your husband's back?" Hate it since it will never be better! Get over it and stop asking!

    The one question that irritates me the most is "what's wrong?" What? Just because I don't have a 5 foot smile on my face doesn't mean I'm happy?! I am a very uplifting person with beautiful aspects on life, and I don't need to be asked "what's wrong?" just because I don't have the Joker's smile.

    What do you do for a living?  It seems to be the only question we ask and then we ask more questions related to what you do for work.  I don't think we a defined by our work but people assume you are defined by it.

    When old associates don't see a change in our personalities when relating to them and get judgmental, assuming that we have not grown in our careers by asking... why are you in the same profession as 5 years ago? yikes/

    "Say What?" This is very annoying, although not as annoying as hubpages saying my answer was too short and making me write this sentence.

    As previously stated by a couple of others, the one question that irritates me the most is "Are you sure?" 

    I feel like saying, "No, I'm not sure, I just wanted to hear myself talk".

    Of course I'm sure, that's why I said it.

    As a stay-at-home mom, two of the most irritating are, "what do you do all day?" or "how do you stand it?"
    If you have a home, you know there is a lot of basic upkeep; if you have children, the amount of work goes up exponentially.
    I'm very blessed to be able to stay home with my children and it is a choice I have made. We all have times when our children annoy us but, as parents, it's our job to love, teach and guide them as best we can.

    My least favorite questions is

    "So what's your job?"

    I go on to explain that I'm a stay at home blogger...

    and then they ask again: "I understand, but don't you have a job?"
