A rancher’s widow was determined to keep her successful husband’s ranch going after he died and left everything to her in his will.
However, she knew very little about ranching, and so she placed an advertisement in the newspaper for a ranch hand to help her out.
Two cowboys saw the advertisement and applied for the job. One of them was gay, and the other was a drunk.
She thought long and hard about which one of them to hire, and when no one else applied for the job, she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring that it would be safer to have him around the house than to have a drunk cowboy.
The gay cowboy proved to be a hard worker, who put in long hours every day, and he knew a lot about ranching.
For weeks, the two of them worked hard and the ranch was doing very well.
Then one day, the rancher’s widow said to the gay cowboy, “You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels a bit.”
The hired hand readily agreed, and went into town on Saturday night.
He returned around 2:30am the following morning, and upon entering his room, he found the rancher’s widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.
She quietly called him over to her.
“Unbutton my blouse and take it off,” she said.
Trembling, he did as she directed and removed her blouse.
“Now take off my boots.”
He did as she asked, ever so slowly removing each boot in turn.
“Now take off my socks.”
He removed each sock gently and placed them neatly by her boots.
“Now take off my skirt.”
He slowly unbuttoned her skirt, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.
“Now take off my bra.”
Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told, removing her bra and dropping it to the floor.
Then she looked at him sternly and said: “If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you’re fired.”
