Careful what you wish for...

 Be careful what you wish for.

 A man walks


into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.


The waitress asks them for their orders.

The man says, 'A hamburger, fries and 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,' and the man reaches into his pocket


and pulls out the exact change for payment.




The next day, the man and the


ostrich come again and the man says, 'A hamburger, fries


and a coke.'




The ostrich says, 'I'll have the same.'




Again the man reaches into his


pocket and 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 and a salad,' says


the man.




'Same,' says the ostrich.




Shortly the waitress brings the


order and says, 'That will be $32.62..'




Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and


places it on the table.




The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me,


sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact


change in your pocket every time?'






says the man, 'several years ago I was cleaning the attic


and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared


and 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 ask 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, 'What's with the ostrich?'



The man sighs, pauses and answers, 'My second wish was for a


tall chick with a big butt and long legs who agrees with


everything I say.'
