Hi....Hope this one is not a repeat....if it is .............Sorry.... The maid asked for a raise: 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 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 I?" Maria: "The Master did." Madam: "Oh." Maria: "My third reason is that I am a better lover than you." Madam (very upset now): "Did the Master say so as well?" Maria: "No Madam, the gardener did."
