Because of a shortage of maids, the minister’s wife advertised for a male servant to help around the house. The next morning, a nicely dressed young man came to the front door of the parsonage.

The minister opened the door and jumped right into the conversation. "Can you start breakfast by 7 o’clock?" asked the minister. "I guess so," the young man said sheepishly.

Can you polish all the silver, wash all the dishes, do all the laundry, take care of the lawn, wash all the windows, iron all the clothes and keep the house clean and tidy?"

The young man was speechless. Finally, he spoke out. "Look, pastor, I came here to see about getting married to my girl. But if it’s going to be that much work, you can count me out right now!"
