At our factory, you get a bonus if you don't miss any days (other than vacation days) and make it to work on time every day during a calendar quarter. It is called the "Bonus Objective". I've gotten it every time except twice (once when my MIL fell and cut her head open and the other for being in KY for my eldest first birth).
When I got my bonus check this time, it just struck me funny. Since it is a "special" incentive, it is taxed at the highest rate allowed. As you read across the check stub, it gave the reason for the check, the classification of the check, then the amount. So reading the reason & classification straight across it read "Special Gross BO" then a dollar amount. Who knew that you could get paid for smelling bad?
