    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.

    (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.
