Joke of The Day

A maid asked for a pay increase. The housewife was very upset about this and decided to talk to her about the raise.
The Wife Asks: 'Tell me, why do you want a pay increase?
Maid: 'Well, there are three reasons why I want an increase..The first is that I iron better than you. '

Wife: '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: (really furious now): 'Did my husband say that as well?'
Maid: 'No ...the gardener did.'
Wife: 'how much do you want?'
