  • What you want isn't always what you get...

    A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich in tow. As he sits down, the waitress comes over and asks for the order. He says, “I’ll have a hamburger, fries and a coke,” and the ostrich chimes in with, “Same for me.”

    Shortly afterwards the waitress returns with the order, and says, “That will be $12.40, please”.
    The man reaches into his pocket, pulls out some money, lays it on the table - and it is exactly $12.40, something that amazes the waitress.

    Each day the man comes in and places an order, which the ostrich goes along with regardless of what it is. Then, when the bill is presented, he reaches into his pocket and pulls out the precise amount, no matter how large or small.

    Finally the waitress is unable to stand it any longer. She says, “Look, each time you pay, the exact amount I quote comes from your pocket, right to the cent. How do you do that?”

    The customer smiles and says, “Well, several years ago I was cleaning the attic, and found an old lamp that I dusted off. A genie appeared, and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that each time I put my hand in my pocket, the right amount of money to cover a particular obligation would be extracted.”

    “That’s brilliant,” she said, awestruck. “Most people would want a million dollars, but you’ll always be as rich as you want, as long as you live.”

    “That’s right,” he said, “whether it’s a litre of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money will always be there.”

    “One thing puzzles me, though,” the waitress says, “What’s with the ostrich?”

    The man sighs, and answers, “My second wish was for a tall chick with long legs, who agrees with everything I say.”
