Chopsticks Sushi...Not sure they want me as a customer anymore

I've been going to this place a lot to get takeout for lunch. Somehow this appears to have made me an easy target to be treated a bit rudely by (I think) the owners, mostly the woman. I've been asked nosy, prying questions a few times, apparently blamed because they rushed my order once and it made someone else's order late (I didn't ask them to rush it), but it's good sushi and it's the closest place to where I live, so I've kept going back. I stopped there on Saturday night because we didn't feel like cooking. The exchange went something like this:

Lady owner: "Don't you cook?"
Me: "Well, yeah, but I didn't feel like it tonight."
Lady owner: "You should learn to make sushi."
Me, silently: (Um, don't you want my business?)

I suppose it doesn't sound like much written down, but with the tone and taking into account previous questions/remarks, I have to wonder why they'd want to drive a regular customer away. If there was anywhere else nearby with decent sushi, I'd switch because I feel quite unwelcome these days. The next closest place to me would be Sumo(?) in Sunridge, as far as I know...a bit further than I'd like to drive. Will I have to branch out and eat something else for lunch? (Nooooo!)

Has anyone else ever had this experience with a restaurant you frequented? I just don't understand why a business owner would do this.

I've recommended this place to friends, and even on here a few times before. :o/
