    I bet you wished you'd thought of this, I know I do!

    From yesterdays Bristol Evening Post:

    Outside Bristol Zoo is the car park, with spaces for 150 cars and 8 coaches. It has been manned 6 days a week for 23 years by the same charming and very polite car park attendant with the ticket machine. The charges are £1. per car and £5. per coach.

    On Monday 1 June, he did not turn up for work. Bristol Zoo management phoned Bristol City Council to ask them to send a replacement parking attendant.

    The Council said "That car park is your responsibility." The Zoo said "The attendant was employed by the City Council... wasn't he?" TheCouncil said "What attendant?"

    Gone missing from his home is a man who has been taking daily the car park fees amounting to about £400. per day for the last 23 years...!

    So that's around £2,870,400, I expect he's on a beach somewhere drinking a cocktail :icon_biggrin:

    Lol! That's an amazing story.
    You can just imagine the exact second that the realization
    hit home about where all the money had gone all those years!
