Back off! He's Mine!

Why some women (and men) find the need to go after someone who they know is taken is beyond me. It is honestly one of my biggest pet peeves (and I have A LOT!). So stop trying to be a home wrecker, find yourself a man or woman who is SINGLE, and leave the taken ones alone.... alright I'll back track and start from the beginning:

Adam, Kalie, Madelyn, and I decided to go have a nice family dinner last night at Cracker Barrel (I'll have the Chicken Fried Chicken please!). The first 15 minutes of us sitting down was pretty much a disaster with Madelyn spilling her tea, Kalie knocking the plate of biscuits and corn bread on the ground breaking the plate, and Adam looking as frazzled as ever... but eventually we all started to settle down. Our meals came and we were all enjoying each others company. Finally, after we had all finished eating dinner, the waitress came to our table and asked Adam how long he had been in the Navy (I reckon she saw his Navy jacket sitting on the back of his chair). They started talking, which was completely fine with me, but then she started getting into her personal life. She started telling him how she and her husband are getting a divorce and how he is in the Air Force and blahblahblah. THEN she asked if she could have his number! Oh. My. God! Lady! Do you not see me sitting here with my WEDDING RING on my hand positioned where you can clearly see it?! I don't think Adam was really thinking anything into it. He has always had a tendency to be oblivious to woman who are flirting with him. I guess he just doesn't know what flirting is (poor guy). Luckily Adam said that he only kept numbers in his phone of family, super close friends, and people he worked with. After a bit,

I took Kalie and Madelyn over to the big checker board since they had been dying to play all evening. When I turned my head over to look at Adam to smile at some wacko thing Madelyn had said, the waitress was back again but leaning on the table EXTREMELY close to Adam clearly trying to turn on the "charm." This just got to be to much. I told the girls to continue playing, to be quiet and be good, and that I'd be right back.

I walked back to the table and tapped the waitress on the shoulder. She turned to look at me as I held up my finger with my wedding ring on it, "Do you see this ring? This is my WEDDING RING. Do you see the ring on his hand? That's his wedding band. Can you put 2 and 2 together and understand that we are married? So I would appreciate if you would stop hitting on MY husband and get back to work." On the 15 minute ride home, I was quiet the entire time. When we got back to the house, the girls went inside and Adam and I sat out in the car. He looked over at me with a questioning look. I told him that nothing bothered me more than someone hitting on someone else who they know is either married or in a relationship. I've never been the jealous type, hell Adam can have all the female friends he wants I truly could careless, but when a person finds the need to flirt with my HUSBAND that just draws the line.

Maybe I over reacted, I don't know. It just bugs the hell out of me ya know? When our relationship is better then ever and then to have some moron try and hit on my husband? It just really hits a nerve.

OK, I've vented enough. So what do y'all think? Did I over react? And this ever happened to you?
