How to Get a Raise (Story)

As you know, as the Profit Prophet I like using stories to illustrate points I am trying to make.  This post involves and excellent story that you can use in order to get a pay raise. It does not matter where you stand or your background, all of us can use this advice, as we have all been there, but few of us have been so as the lady in this story.  Funny how just stating the facts can get the results you want. 

The Mexican maid, Maria, asked the Lady of the house 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, Señora, there are tree' reasons why I wanna increaze.  The first is that I iron better than you."

Wife:  "Who said you iron better than me?"

Maria:  "Jor huzban, he say so."

Wife:  "Oh yeah?"

Maria:  "The second reason eez that I am a better cook than you."

Wife:  "Nonsense, who said you were a better cook than me?"

Maria:  "Jor hozban did."

Wife increasingly agitated:   "Oh he did, did he???"

Maria:  "The third reason is that I am better at sex than you in the bed."

Wife, really boiling now and through gritted teeth:   "And did my husband say that as well?"

Maria:  "No Señora  ....... The gardener did."

Wife:  "So..... how much do you want?"
