    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 $1.40 and coaches $7.00.

    This parking attendant worked there solid for all of 25 years.

    Then, one day, he just didn't turn up for work.

    "Well", said Bristol Zoo Management, "we'd better phone City Council and get them to send a new parking attendant."

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

    "No", said Bristol Zoo Management, "the attendant was employed by the City Council. Wasn't he?"

    "NO!" insisted the Council. "We thought he was your employee all of these years."

    Sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain, or on a white sandy beach somewhere, is a bloke who had been taking the parking lot fees, estimated at about $560 per day at the Bristol Zoo for the last 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $7 million!

    And no one even knows his name.
    :D

    I love it! It must have been like the scene in "Blow" where the two guys have so many cardboard boxes full of cash in their apartment that they had to move.
