Suckiness from Nail Vendors

Lately, at several malls in my area, kiosks have popped up selling a kind of nail product that makes your nails all shiny and smooth. I forget what it's called, but I've bought their product. I have a hard time saying no when they ask to do demos; I'm weak.

Anyway, one time, I was walking through the mall by myself and one of these nail vendors asked if I'd like to demo their product. Like I said, I'm weak, so I said yes. As she was using the shiner, she asked if I owned one of their kits. I said yes. She asked if maybe I'd buy a kit for my boyfriend. I said I didn't have one. This is what sparked the bad service.

Saleslady: Really? A pretty girl like you has no boyfriend?

Me: Uh, no.

Saleslady: Okay...seriously?


Saleslady: Well, maybe you buy for a friend? Or maybe your mother or sister might like it?

Me: No, they're not really into beauty products.

Saleslady: really don't have a boyfriend?

Me: No.

Saleslady: Seriously?

Lady, I don't know if this some weird attempt to flatter me or something, but that got annoying really fast. No, I don't have a boyfriend. I'd really prefer you didn't keep bringing it up, as though there's something wrong with me if I'm single. I'm sure you didn't mean to be annoying/offensive, but you should at least know not to keep asking me the same question five times.
