QOTD for MONDAY

I am still hesitant to use some of my better QOTD ideas since we are still struggling to get everyone back.

Have you ever worked at a place that gave out some sort of a bonus?   What was it?

My first police job was in a small town, about 30 minutes away from where I live now. They gave all city employees either a ham or a turkey the week before Christmas. You got to choose which one you wanted. I always took the ham and gave it to my parents for Christmas dinner. My mom is picky about her turkeys.

That agency also gave all city workers with a college degree a $500 bonus on December 1st. I think there were two of us cops getting them at the time. I bet there are lots more now. Police work doesn't require a degree, but it's getting to be that you can't get hired without one. The agency always referred to those as "smart checks." It was a great perk. I loved not having to save for Christmas.
