Servers Holding My Glass By the Rim: Yuck!

Last night my partner and I dined in a highly-respected though not formal restaurant in San Diego. I noticed that our server held our red wine glasses by the top as she brought them over. I am a bit of a germaphobe but even my super laid back significant other was grossed out to see her hands touching our glasses like that. We didn't say anything. Not sure how I'll handle this in the future. But that is either a rookie mistake or a lapse in judgment.

How common is this in your neck of the woods? If grossed out by it, would you ignore or politely say something?

And please no "liife is filled with germs, lighten up" responses. I am wondering how to handle this.
