The Maid Wants a Raise

The maid approached the lady of the house and asked for a pay increase. The woman was not so easily persuaded, but she asked, “Now, Maria, by what rational do you expect a pay increase?”

Maria lowered her head and looked off to the side before she spoke, “Well, I have three reasons why should increase my pay. The first is that I iron better than you.”

“Who said you iron better than me?” retorted the woman.

“Your husband!” remarked Maria. “He says so! The second reason is that I am a better cook than you.”

“Nonsense!” scoffed the woman. “Who told you that?”

“Your husband did,” said Maria. “The third reason is that I am better at making love than you.”

The woman was practically livid at this point. Through her gritted teeth she asked, “And did my husband say that as well?”

“No,” said Maria. “The gardener did.”

“So how much do you want?”
