a man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him. the waitress asks for their orders.
the man says "a hamburger, fries and a coke" and turns to the ostrich and asks "whats 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 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 the exact amount.
for a while this becomes routine until the two enter again later in the week. "the usual?" asks the waitress.
"no, this time its a treat. so i will have a steak, baked potato and salad" says the man.
"yep, same for me!" says the ostrich.
shortly the waitress brings the order and says "that will be £32.62." once again the man pulls the exact amount out of his pocket and places it on the table.
the waitress cant hold back her curiosity any longer. "excuse me, sir. how do you manage to always come up with the exact money from your pocket every time?"
"well" says the man, "several years ago i was clearing 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."
"thats brilliant!" says the waitress. "most people would wish for a couple of million pounds or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!"
"thats right. whether its a pint of milk or a rolls royce, the exact money is always there" says the man.
the waitress asks "but, sir, whats with the ostrich?"
the man sighs, pauses, and replies "my second wish was for a tall bird with a big arse and long legs who agrees with everything i say!"
