Be careful what you wish for, or you might just get it. In today's daily joke, three men found out just how much having a wish granted might not work out as planned.
One Monday afternoon after a rough day at work, a manager, one of his sales reps, and his admin clerk walked into a bar to grab a well-deserved drink together.
Not wanting to be bothered, they took the booth in the back corner, but as they got comfortable, the trio found an antique-looking oil lamp. Jokingly, the manager picked it up and rubbed it, but much to their surprise a Genie really appeared.

With wide eyes they merely watched the Genie stretch out before he looked at them and said, "Just because you let me stretch my limbs a bit, I will grant each of you one wish."
The admin clerk got very excited and almost fell from his chair as he asked the Genie to pick him first. "Please, I want to live in a beautiful villa in the Caribbean, own a diving boat, and enjoy the rest of my days without a care in the world."

In a puff of smoke, the admin clerk vanished, and the sales rep eagerly asked for a chance to go next. "I have always dreamt of living on a beach in Mexico surrounded by beautiful women, and as many tropical drinks I can handle," the sales rep said.
And just like that, the sales rep disappeared in a puff of smoke as well. Since that left only the manager, the Genie turned to him and said, "Alright, it's your turn to state your wish."

The manager grinned and said, "I want those to back at their desks by lunch end."
At least this Genie could grant all the wishes as they were asked, but in a related daily joke, matters worked out a bit differently.
While walking along the beach one day, a man's prayers were answered, and he also received a wish, but when it came time to grant his wish, it hilariously turned out to be impossible.
