In order to emphasise the annoying aspect of a habit – be it someone else's or one's own – a continuous tense instead of a simple one is used:
People are always asking me silly questions!
I am always making the same mistakes!
I am angry with those people or with myself, with the subject of the verb. IN THE PASSIVE, the first sentence should become:
I am always being asked silly questions!
Doesn't this sentence sound awkward? Because the agent of the passive – they who I am angry with – have disappeared from the sentence, and it is not the grammatical subject – myself – I am angry with.
Shouldn't a sentence with a simple verb form be preferred?
I am always asked silly questions!
