Our Swedish maid asked for a pay increase.

My wife was very upset about this and decided to talk to her about the raise.

She asked: ‘Now Ingrid, why do you want a pay increase?’
Ingrid: ‘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?’
Ingrid: ‘Your husband said so.’
Wife: ‘Oh.’

Ingrid: ‘The second reason is that I am a better cook than you. My Swedish meatballs are a gourmet delight!’
Wife: ‘Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?’
Ingrid: ‘Your husband did.’
Wife: ‘Oh.’

Ingrid: ‘My third reason is that I am a better at lovemaking than you.’
Wife: (really furious now): ‘Did my husband say that as well?’
Ingrid: ‘No Madam…the gardener did.’

Wife: ‘So, Ingrid darling, how much more do you want?’
