When the waiter wants to clear the dishes before everyone is done

This is my pet peeve in a restaurant.

I eat slower than my husband. Is it up to HIM to say "I'll keep my dirty dish until my wife is finished"...usually it happens so fast I can't really fault my husband, but it makes me feel rushed, and a bother.

This is a tough board to search, so sorry if this has been covered already, but what is the protocol when this happens?
