A girl goes into a nail salon...

I went to a nail salon today for a pedicure. After I'd selected my nail polish and been seated in a spa chair, the receptionist came over and asked me, "Did you also want a manicure? And are you wearing shorts or a skirt today?" The second question has baffled me all afternoon. Why would a nail salon want to know if I was wearing shorts or a skirt?

To what degree it matters, I was very casually dressed wearing comfortable olive khaki shorts and the salon was one owned by a south Asian family in metro Atlanta. I'm 100% sure this wasn't the receptionist asking because she admired my attire - not only do we have very different styles, she asked in a manner similar to a waitress asking if you want a soup or salad with your entree at a restaurant.
