Not sure this is quite the same thing but Toto and Zurn send me parts and even whole flush valves for the most frequently repaired flush valves and faucets. They give them to me for warranty calls so I have them on the truck.

I know I put on counter days all the time and feed people at supply houses. The rules have changed so much in regards to entertainment and most entertainment is very frowned upon at the corporate level. Me being a manufacturer rep it is not that I don't want to take customers out and show them a good time it is a matter that the company will not pay for it and I am not going to pay for it out of my pocket

I think NH is getting his old days confused with Don Draper's (Mad Men). I remember the fixture and faucet people being the most generous with us back in the day. But, when our market share of trim collapsed (due to kitchen and bath store competition) so did the perks. If you attend next year's KBIS show, you'll see where the candy is being distributed these days.
