A maid asked the lady of the house for a pay increase. Her boss was annoyed at this and asked, "Now Maria, why do you deserve 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." Wife: "So how much do you want?"
