Aussie trucker and the Emu

clip_image001An Aussie truckle walks into an outback cafe' with a full-grown emu. The waitress asks them for their orders.
The Truckie says , 'A hamburger, chips,' and he turns to the Emu and says 'What's yours?' The Emu says: 'Sounds great, I'll have the  same,'

Soon the waitress brings the order 'That will be $9.40  please,' and the Truckie pulls out the exact change and pays.

Next day, the Truckie and emu come and he says, 'A hamburger, chips and a coke and the emu says, ' Sounds great, I'll have the same.' Again the truckie pays with exact change. This becomes routine as the waitress always says “The usual? as they come in.'

But on Friday night, the Truckie says no so I'll have a steak, baked potato and a salad,' says the man. Same for me,' says the emu. 

Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, 'That will be $32.62.'
Once again exact is places it on the table.

The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. 'Excuse me mate, how do you manage to always pull the exact change from your pocket every time?'  

'Well, love' says  the  truckie, 'a few years ago, I was cleaning out the back shed, and found an old lamp. When I cleaned 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.

Still curious the waitress asks, 'What's with the bloody emu?'  

The truckie pauses and sighs, before he and answers, 'My second wish was for a tall bird with a big arse and long legs, who agrees with everything I say.
