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?" The Council 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...!

Legend. These are the type of people I admire!

It would be a lot of money but I can't imagine that he hasn't upped the prices as £1 23 years ago is pretty expensive!

I live in bristol, and there isnt anything on the evening post site about it. Plus i have never seen anything in the papers about it for x number of years.

The same was posted on another forum over two years ago.

Aww what a shame if it is a hoax...I did try to google it and got a couple of references that made it look legit before I posted....

It is genius tho...

The carpark is pay and display, but not machine. there is a guy at the entrance who charges you £2 per car. If this is true he would have made a killing, the carpark is full everyday, even when its raining. I have a annual membership so i have taken my kids there many times over the past couple of years.

Overall, fairplay to him if he has pulled it off!!!
