    Okay guys...... no bull s^it now...... How many of you pay the manager under the table for your commercial accounts. To secure them I mean. I know not all of you do or all of them take them, but I know there is a % of both. What say you?

    I've seen many guys go down that road. I chose to never ever get into that game. Eventually it catches up to you and your name becomes mud.

    lunches, dinners, drinks...... Ill do everything except hard cash to smooze a possible commercial client. For the most part these companys are looking for the best work at the best price, that usually does it for us.

    I never have, but when I was in WI and worked for Coke we were giving away 2 packer tickets for a display. If your single and you have 2 football tickets, you can get anything, anything at all.
