When you hold any 2 unpaired cards you will flop one pair or better 36.7% of the time (1.7:1 against).

When holding an unpaired Ace you will flop a pair of Aces only 18.4% of the time (4.4:1 against).

So everybody misses pairing an ace a lot more than they hit. But human memory being the way it is, we tend to remember those times our opponent hits more than the times they miss.
