For Bridge Players Only

 

A housemaid was applying for a new position and when asked why she left her last employment she replied:

“Yes, sir, they paid good wages but it was the strangest place I ever worked for they played a game called “Bridge”, and last night a lot of folks were there as I was about to bring in the refreshments I heard a man say: “ Lay down and lets see what you’ve got” another man says: “I got strength but no length” and another man says to the lady “take your hands off my tricks, I pretty near dropped dead just then when the lady answered “You forced me, you jumped me twice, when you didn’t have the strength for one raise.” Another lady was talking about protecting her honour and two other ladies were talking and saying “Now it is time for me to play with your husband and you can play with mine, well I just got my hat and coat and as I was leaving I hope to die if one of them didn’t say “I guess we will go home soon, this is my last rubber.”
