Maria the Maid Wants a Raise

Maria, the Maid, asked for a pay increase and my wife was very upset about this so decided to talk to her about it.

She asked: ‘Now Maria, why do you want a pay increase?’

Maria: ‘Well, Senora, there are three reasons why I want an increase. The first is that I iron better than you.’

Wife: ‘Who said you iron better than me?’

Maria: ‘Your husband said so.’

Wife: ‘Oh.’

Maria: ‘The second reason is that I am a better cook than you.’

Wife: ‘Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?’

Maria: ‘Your husband did.’

Wife: ‘Oh.’

Maria: ‘My third reason is that I am a better lover than you..’

Wife: (really furious now): ‘Did my husband say that as well?’

Maria: ‘No Senora…the gardener did.’

( A few moments of silence )

Wife: ‘So how much do you want?’
