Remove the airiator from the faucet and see if the water flow is better. 
If you have a sprayer hose on the faucet, see if it also lacks flow.

If the flow is still slow, pull the cartridge and then turn on the water 
EASILY and see if you have flow up out of the faucet housing. If so, the 
problem is with the cartridge or something after it. It could be that 
turning off the water caused the rubber seals in the stops under the 
sink to come apart, blocking water flow.

Don't worry about the problem with the wife seeing it, I assume this is 
in the kitchen in your shop!  8>}
