I am new to personally dealing with ARIN as of 1.5 years
ago. I have had to get 5 seperate allocations in that time.
I don't find this to be the case at all. They were very
helpful and I was diligent in getting the things together
necessary for the allocations and in my responses. It felt
to me like teamwork rather than me against them.
And, no, I didn't have to offer anyone free trips to Hawaii.
