At the time, he was working for Color Tile. I called up to ask him something (no idea what) and one of the other sales guys answered the phone. I'd never met this guy, nor had I ever spoken to him while calling for Charlie, so he had no idea who he was talking to. The conversation went something like this:
"Hi," I said pleasantly. "Can I talk to Charlie for a minute please?"
"Sure," says the unfortunate victim cheerfully. "Is this his wife?"
I paused for a single, dramatic moment.
"His WIFE?" I shrieked at the volume that only years of voice training and community theater can produce.
"He's MARRIED?" I continued, more outraged than you could ever imagine. "You get that son of a bitch on the phone RIGHT FUCKING NOW!"
Generally, the phenomenon of someone turning pale is a visual thing, but I swear to you, I could hear the blood draining from this guy's face at the thought that he had just wrecked his buddy's little "on-the-side" nookie deal. I think this is a guy thing: you do not ruin another guy's nookie. It simply isn't the done thing, don't you know. Terribly gauche.
Plus, Charlie can be kind of intimidating physically. He's not a huge guy, but he's one of those guys that just gives the impression that you really shouldn't piss him off or you could easily get a quick and free ride to Having Your Head Crushed Like A Beer Can Town.
But I digress. In the background, I can hear this guy's terrified babbling and abject apologies as he explains to Charlie that "Dude, there's a girl on the phone for you, and I think it's your girlfriend, and holy shit, I mentioned your wife and she's freaking out man, I am so fucking sorry oh my God."
Charlie says, "Um, I think I'm going to take this call in the back," and he goes back into the employees-only area where no one can hear him.
"Hey, honey, what's up?" I say happily.
"Not much, but I think Jason just wet his pants out there," Charlie replied. "What did you say to him?"
I related the conversation to him.
Once again, Charlie and I about DIED laughing.
I try to use my powers only for good, but you know, sometimes, you just can't resist.
