Why is my employer so offended that I’m resigning? Why do they keep asking me where I’m going?

Anonymous
I put in my two weeks notice last week because, I got a job offer at another company paying me $20K more to do the same job (we are very much underpaid at my current employer). My manager and supervisor keep making passive aggressive remarks about my resignation. They keep asking questions about my new position, the new company, and how much they are paying me. They keep looking at my LinkedIn profile.

Why are they so offended? I enjoy working here, but the area where I live is expensive and my current salary is killing me.
