The husband and his young wife were not on good terms. In fact the wife was convinced that he was carrying on with the pretty housemaid, so she laid a trap.
One evening she suddenly sent the maid home for the weekend and didn’t inform the husband.
That night when they went to bed, the husband gave the old story,”Excuse me my dear…my stomach,” and disappeared towards the bathroom.
The wife promptly dashed along the corridor, up the back stairs and into the maid’s bed.
She just had time to switch the lights off when he came in silently.
He wasted no time or words and got on top of her like there was no tomorrow. When he finished and while he was still panting, the wife said, "You didn’t expect to find me here did you!!” and switched on the light.
“No madam”, said the gardener.
