honestly. Is it possible to for civil servants simply refuse bribes in highly corrupt govt institutions without being odd man out, without being threatened by any one to get their work done from you? i won't take bribes, i don't care if others take, but i should not be odd-man out in my office and i should have any pressure from my higher ranks or the person trying to bribe me? of course people bribing will be frustrated and they will irritate us repeatedly. There are some people who are content with their income, no matter how low it is. They would have no problem with their colleagues taking bribes and getting rich. But even those people are frustrated as the entire society seems treat him as weirdo and question repeatedly for refusing to accept bribes.
