A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. The
waitress asks for their orders. The man says, "A hamburger, fries & a
coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?"
"I'll have the same," says the ostrich.
A short time later the waitress returns with the order. "That will be
$9.40 please," The man reaches into his pocket & pulls out the exact
change for payment. The next day, the man & the ostrich come again & the
man says, "A hamburger, fries & a coke."
The ostrich says, "I'll have the same."
Again, the man reaches into his pocket & pays with exact change. This
becomes routine until, the two enter again. "The usual?" asks the
waitress. "No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked
potato & salad," says the man.
"Same," says the ostrich.
Shortly the waitress brings the order & says, "That will be $32.62."
Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket & places it
on the table. The waitress can't hold back her curiosity any longer.
"Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact
change out of your pocket every time?"
"Well," says the man, "several years ago I was cleaning the attic &
found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared & offered me two
wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I
would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would
always be there."
"That's brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people would wish for a
million dollars or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want
for as long as you live!"
"That's right. Whether it's a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact
money is always there," says the man.
The waitress asks, "But sir, what's with the ostrich?"
The man sighs, pauses & answers, "My second wish was for a tall chick
with a big ass & long legs who agrees with everything I say."
