"He gives me his number to call in case there are any further issues. I thank him, and before he leaves I ask if I can offer him something. To my surprise, he refuses. At the gate I ask again, and he says if I want to give something I should give it to his assistant. I offer my tip to the assistant, who pockets it without even giving it a glance."

ok, this i do not understand. first, you offer a bribe. next, when it is refused, you offer again. why? so you can move a few spots up the ladder (from the equivalent of #18) the next time?
