Bristol Zoo Car Park

Apparently, a true story…

Outside Bristol Zoo, there is a car park for 150 cars and 8 coaches.
It was manned by a very pleasant attendant with a ticket machine charging cars £1 and coaches £5.
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 car park is your responsibility”…

“Err no”, said Bristol Zoo Management, “the attendant was employed by the City Council, wasn’t he?”
… “Err NO!”

Sitting in his villa in Spain , is a bloke who had been taking the car park fees, estimated at £400 per day at Bristol Zoo for the last 25 years…
Assuming 7 days week, this amounts to just over £3.6 million…

if it’s true, that’s epic :slight_smile:

Unfortuanlty not true -

That’s a shame, we were looking for a car park to do the same scam
