"Double trouble" or "Did you know you were having twins?" never really annoyed me. I also got that all the time and still do now that they are 10 years old. People are just interested in the whole concept of twins.
The comments that have reaaaally always peeved me are these:

To be honest I think having twins would have been easier for me then having my DD and DS 16mths apart.
I cannot tell you how many times people have told me they know exactly what it's like because their children are a year apart or however many months apart.
Really? I would have LOVED to experience just having one baby. Even for a few months. Being able to go down any aisle in a supermarket, and then choosing whichever checkout looks quickest -which I could never do as my pram only fit down the 10,000 items or more checkouts when I was never able to get more than a few things with a double pram in tow.
Really just leaving the house with two babies is an epic adventure as it took around an hour to get ready, and then get to wherever you're going and it's time for feeding no.1. That's over and it's time to feed no.2.
And really, trying to get TWO newborns into sleeping routines rather than one that is old enough to be in a routine plus a newborn?
Oh man, don't get me going. The only comment I never could and still can't to this day stand.
