A Mexican maid asked for a pay increase. The wife was very upset about this and asked: "Now Maria, why do you want a pay increase?"

"Well Señora, there are three reasons why I want an increase. The first is that I iron better than you."
"Who said you iron better than me?"
"Your husband said so."
"Oh."

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

"My third reason is that I am a better lover than you."
"Did my husband say that as well?"
"No Señora, the gardener did."

She got the raise.
