I've had a handful of situations where UAC popped up and i told it no. Most often though, it's an application that I launched that I knew would throw it...like Acronis True Image when I make a backup. In these cases, while an annoyance, it's only for like 1 second while I click on Ok, and I have my mouse snap to the dialog box so I'm already in position.
I've never personally found UAC to be that annoying and I just click the links. I probably only see these popups a couple of times a week.
