Some LCP Retirement Humor

A Well-Planned Retirement:

Outside the San Francisco Zoo, 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 $4.50 and coaches $12.00. This parking attendant worked there solid for all of 25 years. Then, one day, he just didn't turn up for work. "Oh well", said S.F. Zoo Management - "we'd better phone up the City Council and get them to send a new Parking attendant . . . ""Err . . . No", said the Council, "that parking lot is your responsibility." "Err . . . No", said S.F. Zoo Management, "the attendant was employed by the City Council, wasn't he?" "Err . . . no!" insisted the Council.

Sitting in his villa somewhere in San Miguel de Allende (presumably), is a man who had been taking the parking lot fees, estimated at (about $890.00) per day at the S.F. Zoo for the last 25 years. Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $9 million - or $380,000 every year for 25 years!

Each year he takes part in the La Carrera Panamericana and no one even knows his name.
