The things you shouldn't say to moms with lots of kids that just don't bother me

I saw that someone posted this to a friend's wall, and I've seen lots of similar posts.

Is it weird that those "things" people always post about strangers saying to moms of many have almost never been said to me, or, the things that were said to me didn't bother me at all? I really can't be sure if they were said to me or not, because I would have considered many of them the same as saying "nice weather." 

"Boy, your hands are full" - Truth. 
"I don't know how you do it" - Me neither.
"Are they all yours?" - Often at least one of them isn't, so I totally find this question legit. 
"Lots of helpers" - Sometimes, but usually not, but thanks for being so positive. 
"Enjoy these days, they grow so fast." - I do find this slightly annoying, but only because I think that all the time without reminders and it makes me so sad, but I get why that person wants me to keep being reminded. 
"Are you having more?" - Whatever. My life is an open book. I don't think so, but who knows?

 I've never had anyone ask me something I considered rude (though I admit I have a short memory of these things unless someone REALLY makes me mad), they are far more likely to comment on my kids beautiful singing (in the middle of Walmart) or how sweet or beautiful my kids are in general (even when they're not being particularly sweet or beautiful) - bring it on.
