Yes, it was the lack of tact that so was bothersome to me at the time. I hoped she meant "I don't want to work in a we-all-go-out-together-after-work place", but it certainly came out like "My husband is a state politician (he was) so I will not be hanging out with you geeks."
Also, I like the whole concept of teamwork. I'm not at all into the rah-rah BS (didn't that go out of style in the 80s?), but I think the best work comes from a group of people who have a common goal (and isn't that the definition of a team?), as opposed to a group of people who each have a goal of getting a paycheck on Friday and that's all.
