A man and his ostrich frequently visited a restaurant, and each time, they would place the same order, and the man always had the exact change in his pocket. Then, one day, the waitress became too curious.


A man entered a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich following him. When he got seated, a waitress approached him to take his order. The man asked for a hamburger, fries, and a coke, and the ostrich asked for the same.

After some time, the waitress returned with the order. She explained that his bill was $6.40, and the man dipped his hand into his pocket and brought out the exact change for payment.

The following day, the man and the ostrich returned to the restaurant and asked for the same order. When it was time to pay, the man reached into his pocket and paid with exact change once again. After that, the man and his ostrich made it a routine to visit the restaurant for the same order until one evening.

When they got into the restaurant, the waitress asked, "the usual?" the man replied, "No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and salad." the ostrich asked for what the man had ordered.

The waitress returned with their order and said their bill was $12.62, and as usual, the man pulled out the exact change from his pocket and placed it on the table.

The waitress could not handle her curiosity anymore and said, "excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change out of your pocket every time?"

The man replied, "well,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."

The waitress exclaimed that it was a brilliant wish. She noted that most people would have wished for a million dollars or something to make them as rich as they would want to be in life.

The man smiled, explaining that he had the money for whatever he wanted. Then, after a long pause, the waitress asked why he had the ostrich, and the man sighed and said, "my second wish was for a tall chick with long legs who agrees with everything I say."
