"I will grant each of you a wish." Said the Jinn.
"I want 3 wishes granted instead of 1" said the first.
"You think I stupid meh, on your third wish, you will ask for 3 or 30 wishes more, I am a jinn, not a wish ATM, you moron! Give you one more chance!"
"Ok ok, I am sorry. I want happiness." Said the first.
"WTF... Can be more specific? how the hell am I supposed to know what makes you happy, I am not your mistress!"
Fustrated, the first man yelled:" give me lots of money la!"
"That's easy, I already gave you 10 billion dollars. Be gone! Next."
"Hmm... I want to be appreciate whatever I have, always feeling contented. Is this too vague?"
"No, no, that's ok. But why not 10 billion?" Asked Jinn
"If I have 10 billion, but I worried this worried that, what is the point? If I have 10 billion and crave 100 billion, there is no end to it."
"This is tough, need more power, I can't gave you everything, but I can remove greed and jealousy, without these, maybe you find contentment. Now go" said the Jinn
The third came forward. "I want 100 billion." Jinn frowned and replied:" after hearing what the second man said, what do you still want money?"
He said:" I am not sure if I will appreciate or not appreciate what I have, so of course take the most tangible money first , 100 billion is freckling lots of money! I should be happy. And even if I am unhappy, there is plenty of ways to buy merry what! Also, who is to say money must be inversely related with happiness."
"Ok, you get what you wished" said the Jinn.
If I find a Jinn, I will be the third man.
If not, I strive to be second man.
What about you?
