From The London Times:
Outside England’s Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses.
For 25 years, its parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant….. He charged car owners $1.40 for parking, buses paid about $7.
One day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work and collecting all those fees he just didn’t show up. Managers of the zoo called the city council asking for someone to send down another parking agent to take his place.
The council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the zoo’s responsibility, not theirs.
The zoo told the council that the attendant was a city employee, not theirs.
The city council replied that this parking lot attendant had never
been on the city payroll.
After two and a half decades, this ‘parking attendant’ is undoubtedly sitting in his villa some where on the coast of Spain, Italy or France, laughing at the sucker he’d made of the system.
He apparently charged the parking fee on his own. People gladly paid the parking toll to visit the zoo.
All he had to do was show up each morning, collect the parking fees and stash them in his personal account.
For 25 years, he collected about $569 a dayl After 25 years, that amounts to a paltry 7 million dollars.
LOL! At this point, nobody even knows this shyster’s name. But he’s a genius.
And a millionaire. And nobody knows his name!
God bless you in your retirement, Sir!
