If you have ever been in a nightclub you should be well aware of the toilet attendee (normally a black guy who sings and smiles a lot and is generally a good laugh). They stand by the sink and provide a paper towel when you are washing your hands or a cheeky dash of aftershave or a reassuring mint, all for a small tip.
Well it seems that the small tips have paid off for one toilet attendant.
Joseph Musa, a 38 year old Nigerian man, has been working as a toilet attendant in a well known Dublin night club over the last five years. “I had a small stand in the gents. I would provide paper towels to people washing their hands and I had a lovely selection of aftershaves. The customers seemed to like me. I would always say, If you want to get some pussy you better freshen up and te guys seemed to relate to it. My income was just based on tips from the guys coming in.”
It seems the tips have built up over the years as Joseph has just retired from his job, a self made millionaire.
“After the recession came to an end I saw a huge uptake in my services and the tips just took off. A lad would come in for a piss, a quick wash of his hands and he would drop a twenty on my plate. I worked hard and kept going and its paid off…. I’m a millionaire now. I’m not bragging but I just am.”
Joseph is not sure what the next step is but he did indicate that he would take some time off and research some new projects where he will invest some of his new found wealth.
On an interesting note, when asked if he had or was entitled to pay any tax on his million plus earnings Joseph simply answered, “Excuse the pun but the tax man can PISS off !”
