is she around when they do it? if so, they're just indirectly complimenting her.

and you don't want to ask for that list. If someone provides one, it might include "she's wild in the sack" or something.

I went to the same university in the same major as my ex-wife, but not quite at the same time, so there was some overlap of people who knew us separately. I had one person tell me "You're married to her? But she's so nice."
