Summer intern hitting on my wife at coffee chat

So I scheduled a coffee chat (more just grabbing a pint at a pub) with one of our SA. He did well and wanted to stay in touch to ensure he took the FT offer. I carved out an hour on sat afternoon before my wife and I and our newborn had a play date with another couple and their kid so I brought them along to cut travel time. I went to the loo and came back and he was leaning over trying to put his hand of my wife's shoulder and she was leaning back looking uncomfortable. I just ignored it but after we left she went off for 5 mins about how creepy he was, wouldn't stop staring at her boobs etc. All in all weird situation kid is 21 so I'm maybe willing to give the benefit of the doubt: what do you guys think

what do you guys think? 

My general rule of thumb is that hitting someone's wife is a sign of disrespect to the husband not with the idea that ''you hit my wife, so you were being disrespectful towards me'' but instead with the idea that ''you don't respect me, so you're willing to hit my wife''. 

Alternatively, doing some scrolling here on WSO, you'll see that finance also attracts a lot of incels or antisocials, so just forgive him because he knows no better.

Well, hitting on seniors wife is something out of the line.Having no basic life manners is just bad. No matter how well he might have done, having a characterless worker who will go after wives and other so should not be appreciated.

Tbh, they are basics of work and corporate. Its better he learn it early and in the hard way.

He didn't "hit" his wife. Why do you keep phrasing it like the guy gave a beat down on his wife?

ehhh if your wife has nice boobs im gonna look to me dont see a problem with that. However the touching and flirty behavior was very disrespectful, it weird to do to your wife and creepy but it is also very disrespectful to do to you because it's your wife. Not like you brought some random girl its your wife and he knew that so I think that shows lack of respect for you.

I feel dumber after reading this. 

"At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

I think it's very disrespectful of you to not let someone look at your wife's boobs. I don't like you at all OP.

Was she breastfeeding at this work engagement? It seems odd to bring your wife and newborn, but I hear you. He could be on the spectrum and was trying to make small talk.

Weird to bring fam to coffee whit. Arguably disrespectful to fam. Def disrespectful to a fucking newborn. Stop prioritizing efficiency all the time. 

"Homie were you hitting on my wife?" Watch him squirm. But you won't say shit. You drag your baby to coffee shit then QQ on WSO. Enjoy them milk titties while it lasts. Mine's titties still make a droplet if you suckle em real good a year after we went off the tit. Colostrum, bro. Super healthy.  

Post pic of milky wife tits or gtfo.

I finally got banned off reddit so I'm back. Y'all gonna fill my shit-talking quota.
