Maid asked for a raise

A Maid asked for a raise.
Her 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 “woman” than you.
Madam (very upset now): Did the Master say so as well?
Maria: No Madam, the gardener said.
SHE GOT THE RAISE …
