AN AMAZING STORY OF RICHES……..*

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

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.
