A Well Planed retirement

Postby gustofusion » Thu Jul 30, 2009 4:16 pm

Outside the Bristol Zoo, in England, there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 coaches, or buses.

It was manned by a very pleasant attendant with a ticket machine charging cars ?1 (about $1.40) and coaches ?5 (about $7).

This parking attendant worked there solid for all of 25 years. Then, one day, he just didn't turn up for work.

"Oh well", said Bristol Zoo Management - "we'd better phone up the City Council and get them to send a new parking attendant . . . "

"Err . . . no", said the Council, "that parking lot is your responsibility."

"Err . . . no, said Bristol Zoo Management, "the attendant was employed by the City Council, wasn't he?"

"Err . . . no!" insisted the Council.

Sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain (presumably), is a man who had been taking the parking lot fees, estimated at ?400 (about $560) per day at Bristol Zoo for the last 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over ?3.6 million
($7 million - or $280,000 every year for 25 years)!

And no one even knows his name!
