Wiretaps are a wonderful thing. How I envision the FBI caught the PLCB Marketing Director and who knows how many more.
MD = Marketing Director
S = Salesman
S: Uh,,,,hello. Is this the marketing director of the PLCB?
MD: It is, how may I help you?
S: Well, I've got some wines I'd like to talk to you about.
MD: What type of wines?
S: These are pretty good wines that I'm sure you'd like if you tried them.
MD: Sir, there are forms to fill out and deposits to be made.
S: I understand that but if YOU were to try them then I think we could reach an agreement.
MD: I'm not against giving new businesses a chance. Do you golf?
S: Not well
MD: I'm sure we could meet up on the course to discuss your wines and then sample them after a round or two.
S: That would be great!
MD: I know of a nice little course down in South Carolina that I have been to before. Would that be OK?
S: Ahh....Sure, they have some great courses down there.
MD: Have your driver pick me up at 8 Thursday next week and I can leave from Philly, First Class of course.
S: Of course. We'll have a car and room waiting for you too.
MD: Can I bring a guest? My boss might want to come.
S: I think we can handle that.
MD: There will be some expenses too I'm sure.
S: No Doubt, Will a thousand or two cover it?
MD: Two should cover them.
S: We'll settle that up on the course then.
Good, I'm sure that the PLCB will welcome your addition to our
inventory as soon as I get back. Oh, and I'll need a couple of cases to
stock our "Tasting Room" with so the Board and other Directors can try
S: Just let me know when.
Bursts of laughter are then heard on the tape presumably from the agents involved.
Corruption causes prices to be higher then they would be otherwise. So
if you don't see prices going down at the local state store - guess what.......
END IT, DON'T MEND IT
