Could this be our Footski ?
« on: June 12, 2009, 04:06:59 »

 APPARENTLY A TRUE STORY ...

 Outside Bristol Zoo, there is a car park for 150 cars and 8 coaches.
 There also used to be a very pleasant attendant with a ticket machine charging cars 1 and coaches 5.
 This parking attendant worked there for all of 25 years, then one day he just didn't turn up for work...

 Bristol Zoo Management phoned the City Council ... 
 'Your parking attendant hasn't shown up for work today, so you'll need to send out 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 - " .....

 "Err , no - he was NOT !"

 Now living in Spain is a bloke who had been taking , every day for the last 25 years, the  Bristol Zoo's car park fees that
 amounted to a  conservatively estimated 400 per day...

 Total = 3,650,000 (THREE MILLION SIX HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND POUNDS)

 
 Barry - Hang on, I'm just packing my bags


No matter which way you throw me - I'll always stand.

This is a true story, when it was going on and before it got out to the press it was going around the Council's Corridors of power like wild fire, and the Council tryied to stop it getting out to the media. I know because I work for them...!!

This person who went to Spain started up some sort of Swiming Pool businness...!!!  :) :) :)
