Default The Man and The Ostrich

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.

The waitress asks for their orders. The man says, "A
hamburger, fries and a coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What'* 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 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 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 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'* brilliant!" says the waitress. "Most people would wish
for a million dollars or something and probably spend it all. But you'll
always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"

" That'* right. Whether it'* a gallon of milk or a Rolls
Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man.

The waitress asks, "But, sir, what'* with the ostrich?"

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