A man and a chicken walk into a small restaurant, they sit down, and the waitress takes their order, the man says “I’ll have a number 5 with a large coffee”, and the chicken says “I will have that as well”. When they finished their meal, the man walks up to the counter to pay, and he reaches into his pocket and pulls out exactly how much money he needed with exact change, and he and the chicken went on their way.
The next day, there was a blizzard and the roads were incredibly dangerous, however, the man and the chicken still arrived all the same. This time, the man said “I’ll take a number 12 with a medium orange juice” and the chicken said “I will have that as well”. When they finished eating, the man went to pay, and once again pulled out exact change, and he and the chicken went on their way.
This continued for about a month, no matter how bad the weather, no matter how many roads were closed, the man and the chicken came in, he ordered, the chicken ordered the same, he paid with exact change out of his pocket, and they left.
Eventually, the waitress’ curiosity got the best of her, and as the man was paying, she asked, “How are you able to give exact change so easily?” and the man answered with “Well, about a year ago, I found an old oil burning lamp, so I rubbed it, and a genie came out and told me I could make three wishes, but I also had to be quite specific, or I could end up with something I didn’t want. So I told him, for my first wish, I want to always have however much money I need to buy whatever I want in my pocket, with exact change.” The waitress said “Wow that’s very smart of you! Normally people would ask for a million dollars, but then would be out of money once it’s all spent. However, this way you always have as much money as you need without running out!”
So the man continued, “For my second wish, I want for my truck to always reach my destination, no matter how slick, rocky, or overall dangerous the terrain.” the waitress said “Woah, that’s very smart as well! But what about the chicken?”
The man answered “Ah, I slipped up, I said I wanted a cute chick who follows me wherever I go, and agrees with everything I say…”
