    Where is he then lol ???

    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...!

    ok bit less but still.......best scammer ever?

    23 years??? You'd have though he would have got enough dosh after ten years, for his Caribbean Island and yacht.

    Never to be seen EVER again .....

    Absolute genius, he should have passed on the scam

    Assuming the carpark was full everyday

    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!

    http://i631.photobucket.com/albums/uu34/kaits_2009/wheres-wally.jpgwhere is he?

    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.

    oh!!

    If that is true, then good on him!

    Jumpingphil;5410724

    What, he never had a holiday/day off sick in ten years.



    If you were getting paid 400 quid to stand about would you take a day off?? me thinks not

    is a hoax, pay and display at Bristol Zoo lol

    I can't help it... I feel a sense of admiration lol

    Jumpingphil;5412903

    You can't help getting sick.



    Id struggle in to work for that money :thumbsup:

    for that money, i'd crawl lol

    genius lol

    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!!!
