Our neighbour’s Brazilian maid asked for a pay increase.
The wife was very upset about this and decided to talk to her about the raise.
She asked: “Now Maria, why do you want a pay increase?”
Maria: “Well, Madam, 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?”
Maria: “Your husband said so.”
Maria: “The second reason is that I am a better cook than you.”
Wife: “Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?”
Maria: “Your husband did.”
Maria: “My third reason is that I am a better lover than you..”
Wife: (really furious now): “Did my husband say that as well?”
Maria: “No Madam…the gardener did.”
Wife: “So how much do you want?”
