Looking for a fun way to say thanks for a job well done? When the price at the pumps started rising this summer, the team at Community Veterinary Center in Oneonta, N.Y., received a special bonus: a little gas relief.

"Our boss purchased a box of generic gas relief," says Patricia Weidler, LVT. "Inside the box he placed prescription envelopes. The dispensing directions read, 'Take one and show up for work in the morning.'" The surprise: Each envelope contained a bonus. "We all felt lucky to have a boss who encourages us to be humorous, creative, and thoughtful," Weidler says.
