Does being offered material goods for favorable outlook towards parental figures count?

EVERY kid was once bribed with a quarter to eat something gross like dog food by an uncle or such, at one point in their life.

I am assuming the question is being offered not accepting a bribe.

Everyone has been bribed in some way. I'm sure as a child your parents told you "if you're good we'll go to ______" or "I'll buy you a _______ if you behave"

I was bribed last night with 1000¥ to let some chick take my spot in line for a cab. It was 1am and I needed to get home to my baby sitter. No thanks bitch, you can wait in line like everyone else. All the sailors ahead of you have a curfew too.

I've been bribed but the difference is:
1. Do you take it or
2: Do you reject it
I've never given into a bribe & it disgusts me to see parents use that approach to get their kids to mind-It's No Character
I believe in early discipline & moral values

I worked with military contracts. I sat with these high ranked customers when they came to inspect the product.They signed off on $20-200 million at a time.Our guarantee was 0 defects.They'd get bribed by competitors.I'd get bribed,we all got bribed.

Okay, I'd like to change my previous comment to,no, after reading the comments from other users & what is commonly known as bribery.

As a teacher I once had a parent try and bribe me to pass their son who almost never showed up and when he did he almost never did his work. Needless to say he failed

When I was briefly detained during a set-up abroad, the "detective" tried really hard to get *me* to bribe *him*, but I wouldn't, so he let me go.

If a person has no need or want of anything, then he can't be bribed. No I have never been successfully bribed.

I was just bribed yesterday to cover a co-worker's shift tonight, because she forgot to ask for the day off. But it isn't an immoral bribe in my opinion; she is simply compensating me for having to change my plans on such short notice.

Never accepted nor offered... Once my dad bribed a busy and popular restaurant to skip an hour wait. Surprised it worked but was kind of disappointed.

No. I saw a guy last year who I believe would be more than willing to bribe me. And, I get to see him again in 2 months.

Me personally? No. I'd lose my license and open myself to criminal prosecution. However, it occurs all the time in the construction industry. A job will go out for bid. The low number is shopped around. People collude and determine who wins the bid.

Not that I can remember, unless you count the federal government (BLM) trying to get us to sign over primary easement of the road to our mountain land in Oregon so they could log the acreage above us. We said no. They upped the payment. Still no.

But it was all written up in a government contract of some kind, so I guess it really wasn't a bribe. Funny how they could keep increasing it, though.

If you can't pass a test on AutoCAD, you deserve to fail in life.

I was offered a healthy bribe by an elderly, wealthy, man once. He wanted me to make a change in the contract he was about to sign. I was absolutely stunned when he pulled out an envelope stuffed with hundred dollar bills.
