No one can complain about this one.
From TheLondon Times:
Outside Englandís 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....
The fees for cars ($1.40), for buses (about $7).
Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn't show
up; so the zoo management called the city council and asked it to send them
another parking agent.
The council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the zoo's own
The zoo advised the council that the attendant was a city
The city council responded that the lot attendant had never been
on the city payroll.
sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain, or France, or Italy, is a
man who'd apparently had a ticket booth installed completely on his own and then
had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the
parking fees, estimated at about $560 per day --
for 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $7
million dollars..... and no one even knows his name.
I think this is my favorite e-mail ever!
