I cut the following article out of the Times many years ago and it still keeps us amused. Many of you have asked for a copy so here it is:
A cleaning lady was applying for a new position. When asked why she had left her last employment, she replied:
"Well Sir, the wages were good, but it was the most ridiculous place I ever worked. "They played a game they call bridge, and last night a lot of people were there. As I was about to bring the refreshments, I heard a man say: "lay down and le'ts see what you've got".
Another man said: "I've got stregth but not much length." Then another man said to a lady: "take your hand off my trick."
I pretty near dropped dead just when a lady answered: "You forced me, you jumped me twice when you didn't have the stregth for one good raise".
Another lady talked about protecting her honour, but two other ladies said: "now it's my turn to play with your husband while you play with mine."
Well, I got my hat and coat and as I was leaving - I hope to die, if I didn't hear one say: "well, I guess we can go home now. That was our last rubber".
