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!!!
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.

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? /
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.
