Outside the zoo in Bristol, England, there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses.
For 25 years, the car park has been controlled by one pleasant ticket inspector. The fee for parking was £1 for cars and £6 for buses.
So - one day: After having been at work every day for 25 years, the regular parking guard did not show up for work. The administration of the zoo therefore contacted the municipality and reported that there had not been any parking guards at work for the past week.
The municipality checked it, but the answer was that it was the zoo's sole responsibility to take care of the parking.
The zoo denied this - and immediately replied back that the parking guard who has always worked there was employed by the municipality. The municipality stood its ground, and said that the parking guard who has worked there for 25 years never was employed by them.
While all this was going in England, a man probably sat in a luxury villa somewhere on the coast of Spain, France or Italy. A man who obviously had made his own ticket machine, and on his own initiative met up at the parking lot to charge for parking.
It is estimated that the man earned nearly £500 a day - 7 days a week, for 25 years, which corresponds to an amount of staggering £8 million during the 25 years.
And the funny thing? No one knows his real name.
True or not, it's criminally genius.

Castro's last wish: No monuments
Cuba's ex dictator Fidel Castro had a last wish; He did not want any monument of himself, and no streets or buildings should be named after him.
