Two wishes

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.
The waitress asks them for their orders.

The  man says, ‘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 $9.40 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,  A hamburger, fries and a coke. ‘The ostrich says, ‘I’ll have  the same.’

Again  the man reaches into his pocket and pays with e exact amount.

This becomes routine until the two enter again.

‘The  usual?’ asks the waitress.

‘No,  this is Friday night, so I’ll have a steak, baked potato and a
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  in your pocket ever 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’s  brilliant!’ says the waitress. ‘Most people would ask 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, ‘What’s with the ostrich?’

The  man sighs, pauses and answers, ‘My second wish was for a tall chick
with a big ass and long legs who agrees with everything  I say!’
