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?'

 

 

 

'Well,'

 

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.'
