A Man and his Ostrich

20 Jun

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,” then 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
$6.40 please,” and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the
exact amount 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 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 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, I’d
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 then 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.”
