Why didn’t Han Solo enjoy his steak dinner? It was Chewie.

After reading many stories all based on what we think a Genie would do, or what the results would be had we encountered one - and granted Genies don't exist - I think the best way to handle things is to just walk away.. 

But that's boring and safe, right?   You wouldn't do that nor would I but hey it is safe!

Three Men Find a Genie

Three men were walking along the street when one of them spotted an old lamp on the side of the road. Picking it up and rubbing it they were surprised to find a genie appear.
"You get one wish," The genie said. "I offer wealth, wisdom or power."
"I choose wealth." Said the first man.
"I choose power," said the second.
"I choose wisdom," said the third.

Many years later the men met again at a diner to discuss the results of their wishes.
The first man spoke. "I wish I chose power," he said. "I had money but I was robbed and it was all stolen."
The second man spoke. "I wish I chose wisdom," he said regretfully. "I had power but was betrayed by the people I trusted and lost it all."
The third man spoke. "I wish I had money. Do you know how hard it is to get paid for telling people how to actually solve their problems?"
Then all of them realized that none of the others had any cash and they ran off without paying the bill, but the wise man took off running first.
