What are the things a theist will say that gets under your skin?

I only have one thing I should not even be bothered by, when they say "I will pray for you"; it seems to trigger something inside me, I feel offended by it, I want to smack them in the mouth, it is fortunate for them that I do not condone violence, but man do I grind my teeth when I hear them say it.


So come on, let us know what gets under your skin and how you feel about it?

    I honestly get very annoyed when I'm told that theists are trying to "save me" and that they are condemning me and telling me that I deserve to suffer in hell for an eternity because they love me.

      Ignorant statements in general. Last Easter I had a co worker not much younger than me (21) I say, tell me
      "I don't know how anyone could not like this day. The day our great savor came back and blessed us all."
      I just looked at her for a moment and then said. "I'm an atheist...remember" Talk about awkward.
      I work reservations for an airline though, so I hear a lot of (god bless you)'s on holidays. I usually just mentally gag and say "ok then bye..."'click'.

        I think a more interesting topic would be "What are the things that atheists say that get under your skin?". Somebody get on that!
