The qoute from from "Grass Roots" by G Atherden got me thinking about weather i knowing have been bribed or attemped bribbery.
The closest i have ever been to being bribed was when i worked in a rural community and was looking into a high grass violation. When i confronted the lady of the house about the high grass she reached over to the cabinet and grabed a squash and said here maybe this will make things right. i refused the squash and insisted that she mow the grass.
Now on offering bribes, i accidently tried to bribe a police officer once. I was 20ish and driving a little fast. He stopped me and asked for my licience and registration and evidently a $20 dollar bill stuck to the back side of my liciences. So he took the licience and registration, as well as the $20 that was sandwich between back to the car and imediately came back accussing me of trying to bribe an officer of the courts which was a class F felony in the Great State of North Carolina. After getting me out of the car he called his supervisor and after he heard the story i was free to go. In all the confusion i didn't get a ticket so i guess if i was subconsiously trying to bribe him it worked but not the way i guess bribes are supposed to work.
So Cyburbia, do you have any bribery stories?
You can change the names to protect the guilty or refer to yourself as a friend, friend of a friend, a former co-worker, etc... If that makes you feel better.
