Single woman's sassy response to rude question shocks sister's boyfriend's sister 😲

Being single is not a crime, yet some people feel the need to pry into others' personal lives and ask intrusive questions. For a 36-year-old single woman, this question has been asked one too many times, especially by women.

Although she tried responding politely, it didn't work, and she decided to use a sassy method to shut them up. She responds by saying, "Because I still haven't met your husband/boyfriend yet," while acting somewhat suggestive. This method worked until she met her sister's boyfriend's sister, who asked the same question.

The single woman gave her usual response, and the woman was shocked, and the conversation became awkward. The single woman is now questioning if she was the a**hole for her response.

In this post, we dive into the debate of whether or not she was wrong for her response and explore the reasons why people feel the need to ask intrusive questions about someone's personal life. Join in the conversation and let us know your thoughts.
