    I saw a council lad take a back hander at the tip. Van drove in and got rid of his rubbish. Slipped the worker a tenner.

    In the interest of equality, I take every back hander offered.

    Every time I’m offered one, I take it.

    Someone has to pay for the holidays and cars.*

    Used to get 'incentives' from suppliers when working in kitchens, wasn't much but some of the bigger places the chefs are basically getting another wage in kick backs.

    I sometimes get stuff to offer to contacts when I'm trying to blag extra space for promos. Store managers usually get excited by something like a free pen :lol:

    Happens all the time in the West but using legitimate methods.

    Whenever I see a contract with signing bonuses, roundtripping, risk/reward share etc... they are realistically done to win a deal and then there will be incentives for the money to get to partners and senior managers.

    It's not as blatant as slipping someone an envelope but amounts to the same

    The hearing starts soon I believe.

    Is it still classed as a bribe if you receive a little unexpected 'thank you' in the post a few weeks later such as a £200 bottle of single malt?

    I've bribed the security at the metro radio arena a few times.

    I was on site with a few guys from one of the big supermarkets and offered to pick up some bacon rolls for everyone. They refused to let me buy them as it might be considered a bribe and they then had to drive to their local store for a breakfast in the canteen as that was procedure. Reckon if I'd offered them a use of me Biro they'd have been on the phone to HR to double check they were allowed.
    S.S.R.. and becs like this.
