Can't people take a joke anymore?

I saw a woman in the supermarket with the cutest gurgling baby in her cart. I approached her and jokingly asked which aisle she got it in. She glared at me and quickly walked away.
Update: I people are that afraid, maybe they shouldn't go out in public or get someone to go with them and hold their hand. Also, if they are afraid that I might be a psychopath, is it because there are more crazies these days, or are they just getting more publicity?
