Maria, the Mexican housekeeper in a Texas home asked the lady of the house for a pay increase.
The wife was very upset about this and decided to talk to her about the raise.
She asked: “Now Maria, why do you want a pay increase?”
Maria: “Well, Senora, there are three reasons why I want an increase”.
The housekeeper pauses, then continues…
“The first is that I iron better than you”.
Wife: “Who said you iron better than me?”
Maria: “Your husband said so”.
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 (angrily): “Oh did he now!”
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?”
