The maid asked for a pay increase. Her employer's wife was put out about this and decided to take her to task about the raise. She asked: ‘Now dear, why do you think you deserve a pay increase?’

The maid: ‘Well, miss, there are three reasons why I want an increase. The first is that I iron better than you.’
Wife: ‘What? Who said you iron better than me?’
Maid: ‘Your husband said so.’
Wife: ‘Oh.’

Maid: ‘The second reason is that I am a better cook than you.’
Wife: ‘Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?’
Maid: ‘Your husband did.’
Wife: ‘Oh.’

Maid: ‘My third reason is that I am a better lover than you..’
Wife: (shocked and furious now): ‘Did my husband say that as well?’

Maid: ‘No miss - the gardener did.’

Wife: ‘So what sort of money are we talking about?’
