The Monkey's Paw

Mr. White says "I don't know what to wish for, and that's a fact. It seems to me I've got all I want."

How are these words ironic?

Right after this line Herbert reminds Mr. White that they still have a 200pound debt on the house. I think the irony is also that when faced with desire, people always want more.
