    "Correct Change"

    A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. As
    he sits, the waitress comes over and asks for their orders. 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 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 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 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
    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
    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, pauses, and answers, "My second wish was for
    a tall chick with long legs who agrees with everything I say."
