Insensitivity or Sensitivity?

While in LA I spent a lot of time with an attractive male friend of mine. During my last day there we ate at a cute little outdoor bistro. After we got back to the hotel, he mentioned that when he had stepped away to use the bathroom, our waitress had cornered him and given him her phone number!

I was pissed! How did she know that the two of us weren't a couple??! I would never give a guy my number who was dining with a woman alone. (She didn't inquire as to his status before she offered up her number, I asked him).

Was she being insensitive or am I being over sensitive?? Thoughts?

I think her behavior was completely rude and that of a predatory bitch who would not have cared if the two of you were a couple.

On the other hand, I find that I can often tell (or at least who I think) who is a couple or just friends. The body language is usually different. Sort of like how you can tell when a couple is pissed at each other and trying not to scream like idiot in public.
