A Programmer, a Product Manager and their manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke.

The Genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one."

"Me first! Me first!" says the Product Manager ."I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."

Poof! She's gone. In astonishment, "Me next! Menext!" says the Programmer. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of pina coladas and
the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.

"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager. The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

MORAL OF THE STORY: Always let your boss have the first say.

8.5 out of 10. Not too shabby.

If I had the first wish, could I wish for the other two people to make their wishes according to my desires? Then I would at least get two good wishes.

I've always thought the best third wish in the old three wishes ploy was "three more wishes please".

Got to be careful as in Genie V1.3 and lower this can cause an endless loop........
