    Paying a Bribe

    by aboulmiche Written Jun 8, 2005

    At the airport, during luggage check up, you might be asked to pay $10 to facilitate your passing.

    Unique Suggestions: If you wanna pass quickly, a $5 bill will be more than enough. You can also offer a few packs of cigarettes. This will make your pass much easier.

    Fun Alternatives: Don't pay anything and wait for your turn in the row.
