A wealthy couple in Arizona employed a Mexican maid, who they barely paid the minimum wage. One day she asked them for a pay increase.
The wife was very annoyed about this and decided to talk to the maid about this pay increase that she was demanding.
She spoke to their Mexican maid, in a demeaning manner, “Now Margarita, tell me, why do you want a pay increase?”
The maid answered, “Well, Señora, there are three reasons why I want an increase. The first is that I iron better than you”.
The wife replied, “Who said you iron better than me?”
The main responsed, “Your husband said so Señora”.
“Oh did he”, the wife muttered.
The Mexican maid continued, “The second reason, is that I am a better cook than you”.
“That is nonsense Margarita. Who said you were a better cook than me?”
The maid replied, “Your husband did Señora”.
“Oh did he now”, she muttered again, by this time starting to feel the anger building up inside her.
The Mexican maid continued, “My third reason is that I am a better lover than you”.
The wife, who was really furious by now, replied angrily, “I suppose my husband said that as well?”
The maid replied, “No Señora… the gardener did”.
There was a long silence…
The wife asked the maid, “So Margarita, how much do you want?”
