One Day, One Man, and One Lamp to be Rubbed
Published on Tue 11 January 2000
One day, a man rubbed a lamp.
Not surprisingly, a genie popped out of the lamp and said, "You have three wishes. I will grant whatever you wish for, but remember, your boss gets twice as much as you wish for, so be careful what you wish for."
The man said, "That's easy! I want a million dollars."
A big pile of cash appeared in front of him. "Now, your boss has two million."
The man said, "Never mind! I am happy as long as I have my million. Now, I want a Mercedes."
A red Mercedes appeared in front of him and the genie said, "Now, your boss has two of these."
The man was happier than ever. He thought about his last wish, and said, "You know, I have always wanted to donate a kidney!"
