English term or phrase:We don't want to turn off Mr. and Mrs. America
An estate agent is doing an open house for a gay owner who has AIDS. She took the things out of the wall and the shelf saying that she doesn’t want the house to smell gays.
“I hope I didn’t offend you, Fabian” She said
“My name is Fabio” answered the gay owner
“Fabio – Sorry. These open houses make me a nervous wreck. But business is business; we don’t want to turn off Mr. and Mrs. America”
I don’t understand the word “nervous wreck” and “we don’t want to turn off Mr. and Mrs. America”
