Day Brightener – Sometimes You Have To Shape Your Request Carefully

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”

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 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 cannot hold back  her curiosity any longer. “Excuse me, Sir. How do you manage to always come up with the  exact change in 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’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.”
