Exact Change

How does the guy always have exact change?

A man walks into a bar with an ostrich walking behind him.

When he sits down the bartender comes over and asks for the order.

The man says, “I’ll have beer” and then turns to the ostrich,  “What’s your order?”

“I’ll have a beer too” the ostrich speaks amazingly.

ostrichThe bartender pours them the beers and tells them “That will be $3.40.”

The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out exact change for the drinks.

The next day they come back again, and the man tells the bartender “I’ll have a beer,” while the ostrich says “I’ll have the same.”

Once again the man reaches into his pocket and pays the bill with the exact change.

This becomes routine until one evening the two patrons enter the bar later than normal.

“The usual?” asks the bartender.

“Well, it’s close to last call, so I’ll have a large scotch,” says the man.

“Same for me,” says the ostrich.

“That will be $7.20” the bartender tells them.

The man again amazingly pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places the money on the bar.

The bartender can’t contain his curiosity any longer.

“Excuse me, but how do you manage to always come up with the exact change out of your pocket every single time you pay the bill?”

“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 just put my hand in my pocket, and the right amount of money will always be there.”

That’s brilliant!” says the bartender. “Most people would wish or 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 guy.

The bartender then asks, “Okay, one other thing though, what’s with the ostrich?”

The man tells him,  “My second wish was for a chick with long legs.”
