Be careful for what you wish; it may just come true.

In this week’s Friday Funnies, the lesson is to be careful for what you wish, as it may just come true.

The waitress asks them for their orders.

The truckie says, “A hamburger, chips and a Coke,” then turns to the emu to ask, “What’s yours?”

“Sounds great, I’ll have the same,” says the emu.

A short time later the waitress returns with the order. “That will be $10.40 please.”

The truckie reaches into his pocket, pulls out the exact change, and pays.

The next day, the man and the emu come again and he says, “A hamburger, chips and a coke.” The emu says, “Sounds great, I’ll have the same.”

Again the truckie reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change.

This becomes routine until the two enter again.

“The usual?” asks the waitress.

“No, it’s Friday night, so I’ll have a steak, baked potato and a salad,” says the man.

“Same for me,” says the emu.

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 mate, how do you manage to 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 I 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, “So what’s with the bloody emu?”

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

    Thank you. That is a far more repeatable version than the original one I heard.

    The Plus Sign

    Little Zachary was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried everything from tutors, mentors, flash cards to special learning centers. In short, everything they could think of to help his math.

    Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and enrolled him in the local Catholic school.

    After the first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't even kiss his mother hello.

    Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying. Books and papers were spread out all over the room and little Zachary was hard at work. His mother was amazed. She called him down to dinner.

    To her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back to his room without a word; and in no time, he was back hitting the books as hard as before. This went on for some time, day after day, while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference.

    Finally, little Zachary brought home his report card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit the books. With great trepidation, his Mom looked at it and to her great surprise, little Zachary had an "A" in math.

    She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said, "Son, what was it? Was it the nuns"?

    Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head, no.

    "Well, then," she said, "was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms? What was it already"?

    Little Zachary looked at her and said, "Well, on the first day of school, I knew they weren't fooling around when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign."
