    This gave me a good chuckle




    From The London Times:




    A Well-Planned Retirement



    [​IMG]





    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. The fees were £1 for cars ($1.40),
    £5 for busses (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 responsibility.
    The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was
    a City employee.
    The City Council responded that the lot attendant
    had never been on the City payrole.
    Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain
    (or some such scenario), is a man who'd apparently had a
    ticket machine 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.

    Good idea but still a thief. A hell of a con artist.
