A year back, we were visiting my wife’s relatives. The head of the family, my wife’s uncle, used to be in the police force before he drank himself to death.
As is the norm in these cases, his eldest son was given a job in the police department. Of course, he had to pay a bribe for the job. He got a discount because of his late father, but he wasn’t exempted. If the son had been a graduate, the amount would have been lower, but he would still have had to pay.
And oh – he did not get an actual policing job. That would have cost him much more. He was given a clerical job in the department, dealing with personnel matters. That cost lower.
“I don’t suppose you have any opportunities to make extra money in this section?” I asked him.
