People referring to you as 'him' or 'her' while present

Does it annoy you when people refer to you this way when you're are present? Sometimes it can seem more rude than others. I came across this a few times recently and it's kind of annoying.

You can see Russell Brand calling someone out about this from 5:04 onwards. I know it's Russell Brand, but just watch that part. He later corrects her on this at 6:07.

It was drummed into us as children that it's very rude not to use someone's name when they are present. If I heard, "Who is she/he? The cat's mother?" once, I heard it a million times.

People need to relax, if I wanted to be rude about you, saying “him or her” wouldn’t be my approach.

I’ve noticed a lot of Americans tend to have this habit. Very rude and disrespectful.

I never said it was deliberate rudeness.
