A lady applied for the position of a house maid. Asked why she left her last employment, she said: Sir, the wages were good, the living conditions were quite comfortable but it was the most ridiculous place I've ever worked. They played this game they called Bridge. Last night a lot of folks were there.
As I was about to bring the refreshments, I heard a man tell a lady: "Lay down and let's see what you've got."
Another man said: "I have strength, but not much length."
Yet another man told a lady: "Take your hand off my trick!"
I dropped dead when a lady said: "You forced me. You jumped me twice but you didn't have the strength for even one good raise."
Another lady was talking about protecting her honour.
One lady told another: "Now it's my turn to play with your husband; you play with mine."
I packed my bags, took my hat and coat and was leaving, when I heard a young man say: "I guess we can go home now. This is the last rubber."
