Why do I annoy people?

I seem to annoy a lot of people. I don't mean to, it just happens. What can I do to become less annoying?

I try to be a nice guy. I go out of my way to be nice to folks, but I inevitably annoy people.
For example, at work, I asked a girl if she was on a certain project and she just blew up at me. I tried to apologize, but she said I'm not sorry because I always do what I did to annoy her.
I can think of a couple of things that may be causing this:
1. I have an immature sense of humor: I try to keep this to myself and to a few firends, but it ends up slipping out here and there.
2. I try to please most people: I think this is a good thing, but perhaps people find this annoying.
I know some people here might need more explanation from me, so I set up a throwaway e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
