The Man and his Ostrich

Post by SMLCHNG »

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind
him, and as he sits, the waitress comes over and asks for their order.

The man says, "I'll have a hamburger, fries and a coke," and
turns to the ostrich. "What's yours?" "I'll have the same," says the

A short time later the waitress returns with the order. "That
will be $6.40 please," and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out
exact change for payment.

The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man
says, "I'll have a hamburger, fries and a coke," and the ostrich says, "I'll
have the same." Once again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes a routine until late one evening, the two enter
again. "The usual?" asks the waitress. "No, this is Friday night, so I will
have a steak, baked potato and salad," says the man. "Same for me,"
says the ostrich.

A short time later the waitress comes with the order and says,
"That will be $12.62." Once again the man pulls exact change out of his
pocket and placesit 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 and I 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, 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, "One other thing, sir, 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.
