Have you ever been bribed?
Does being offered material goods for favorable outlook towards parental figures count?
Not concerning my profession but by parents etc. absolutely lol
"If I give you _____ will you wash the dishes and empty the garbage for me?" ,meanwhile you do all that and they welch.
As Tony Montana would say, "All I got in this world is my balls and my word and I don't break either of 'em for nobody!"
Got kids? Fill in the blanks, "I promise if you let me ______ I will _______."
My son tried to bribe his younger brother with a transformer for half an order of greasy fries.
as a child, sure, as an adult, no
Slip me a 50.00 and I'll tell us.
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.
Sure have, "If you'll let Tristan stay over and watch cartoons on Netflix, next week I'll blah blah blah!"
"It's a deal!!"
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.
Not outside of my siblings trying to give me their chores, but a remarkable number of people have tried.
Wife does it to me all the time.
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.
How the hell did your parents potty train you without M&Ms!?
That's how my parents made it through my childhood.
My dad bribed me to stop sucking my thumb when I was little by buying me a Barbie
Yes, I have been a toddler.
I've never had anything worth being bribed for.
Maybe I could tell you, just need a little funds to find out how
I've been offered bribes, but have never accepted.
I've been offered a few times but never accepted. Those darn morals kept me from accepting.
Allowance as a kid??
No but I'd like to be.
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.
Well, they attempted
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.
By my parents when I was little. I don't agree with that parenting style.
My wife bribes me. You know what I'm saying. 😉
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.
Attempts were frequently made when I was an insurance claims adjuster...Attorneys,Body Shops
Earlybird, I know! If we can't trust lawyers, who can we trust?
Yup.... I handled BI claims
Free weekends at his ski lodge
Spilt the settlement amount
There was no end to the offers/bribes
You can never trust a lawyer there the biggest liars in there job, however my one friend is the most honest in person her excuse is she's not a liar she's a word turner I call it lieing lol
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.
Regularly. For sex, BBQ, good alcohol...
Never successfully but because of my position, there were several attempts.
Someone offered me 100 dollars if I sent them the test through email. It was a test on Autocad for college. I said no.
If you can't pass a test on AutoCAD, you deserve to fail in life.
That was my feeling, the test was so easy.
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.
when I was a freshman I remember this one kid offered me 10 dollars if I would let him see my test and copy it for the math finales, he said he would give me it AFTER the test, I said no as you could imagine
You offering? Whadda ya want?
Oh "Yes", I have been bribed countless times, but only in the fun and playful ways. Never in an illegal, injurious, or unethical way.
I've been attempted to be bribed, but never successfully.
If you count the wife giving me some lovin for me doing things around the house. . .
How do you think I get so many naps in? 😁
