Ever jealous of S/o coworkers?

So my hubby just took a supervisor position. Since then he has to work everyday with two other supervisors in different departments (they have to work hand in hand to keep things running, tech business). Well one of them is a single childless women that is my husbands age. I have met her once or twice and she is sweet, super bubbly and cute. They all work in one huge office so when they have to have supervisor meetings, they will go out to lunch to talk in private (along with the male supervisor not just her), which bugs me for one. The other thing is, is that they will talk via txt sometimes and she is always saying stuff like "your awesome thanks for getting whatever done" basically praising him not just saying thanks. I can have his phone whenever I want so i see them. He has never given me a reason to not trust him but this is just buggging me. 

Am I being a little crazy?

Do you ever get jealous of coworkers?

Oh man that'd be driving me crazy, too! Like I would have a serious problem with it. Especially the text messages----gotta say, kind of not necessary!! It's a little bit 'extra' in my opinion...  It's great that you have access to his phone though...and not to be a debbie downer, but you don't ever think that maybe he deletes any 'inappropriate' messages from her before you see them? Also, yes I have been jealous of my boyfriends co-workers (not jealous of them as in 'gosh i wish i was her', but of their work relationship/friendship). I STILL have an issue with them and he doesn't even work at that particular job anymore----but he is fb/instagram friends with all of them and has all of their phone numbers..

Ya I felt they were going out of the way too, but no I don't beleive that he has deleted any, since I can see the whole convo's they wouldn't make sense at all if he deleted any. Everytime she has made a comment like that he just doesn't say anything back except your welcome. And yes having access to his phone is a big one, just like he has access to mine, i feel every couple should. He doesn't have her on fb or anything and I know it is just for work but still....

no ur not being crazy, its natural to me... I used to get jealous of my husbands coworkers where he had work because 95% of the people that worked with him was females, and me and my husband would go out and i sware every female in the club we was at worked with him, and these girls just ran up to him and gave him a hug and say OMG I LOVE YOU SO MUCH, and im just sitting there like wtf, and start looking all irk and stuff, but to me its just natural cause they have to talk alot..

Not at all. My husband works with a few women, it doesn't bother me. He's my husband, and I trust him completely. No reason to be jealous.

He's a branch manager of a bank and he is on his personal cell and work cell phones constantly, talking and texting. He works mainly with women, and it doesn't bother me at all.

Back when we were dating, he managed multiple health clubs and had women all over him. They would text, call, and ask him out all the time. That didn't bother me either.
