The maid wanted an increase in salary ..... The Madam was very upset about this and asked: "Now Maria, why do you want an increase?" Maria: Well Madam, there are three reasons why I want an increase. The first is that I iron clothes better than you. Madam: "Who said you iron better than me?" Maria: "The Master said so." Madam: "Oh." Maria: "The second reason is that I am a better cook than you." Madam: "Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?" Maria: "The Master did." Madam: "Oh." Maria : "My third reason is that I am a better lover in BED than you." Madam (very upset now): "Did the Master say so as well?" Maria: "No Madam, the gardener did." SHE GOT THE PAY RAISED..new gown, shoes and asked NOT to expose the story to the Master!!!
